Art is in the eye of the beholder and the stomach of anyone who forgets to pack a lunch on a museum camping trip. Nourish an artsy appetite with today’s Groupon: for $27, you get a summer-camp art workshop for a child (a $58 value) or a teen portfolio-preparation workshop (a $55 value) at The Village Artist Fine Arts Center in Huntington.
The Village Artist’s experienced portrait pedagogues guide aspiring artists through a bevy of media. Pintsize Picassos will spend the morning or afternoon in a focused workshop under the tutelage of experienced instructors. The three-hour sessions (for ages 6–12) concentrate on fun right-brain pursuits that include working in watercolors, drawing cartoons, and sculpting life-size clay models of the Great Wall of China. Meanwhile, those ages 13–18 hone their individual creative cachets in a guided portfolio workshop, which devotes 2.75 hours to channeling the muse of their chosen medium while free from distractions such as recreational trigonometry. Village Artist also publically exhibits the eye-catching output of its students, reaping accolades for Monets in training and opening doors to future art opportunities.
Children's workshops include supplies; teen portfolio-preparation workshops do not.
