Artistic expression can take the form of a vibrant painting, a stunning sculpture, or front-yard hedges trimmed into the shape of longing. Let creativity blossom with today's Groupon: for $80, you get a four-week Art Sampler course, including supplies, at Tulsa Art Center (a $175 value).
Versed in a broad array of media and techniques, the professional art instructors at Tulsa Art Center guide aspiring pupils to discover sundry forms of expression through a series of varied classes. Throughout the four-week course, students dabble in several artistic disciplines, armed with the instruction and supplies to produce in-home versions of the Sistine Chapel's ceiling without spending additional money on supplies. The drawing class deals in such ideas as scale, use of space, and relational drawing, and the colored-pencil class delves into the vibrant strokes of Prismacolor pencils, which can be blended for shading and adding depth to pieces. Students flex their aquatic art skills in the watercolor session, discovering basic techniques while creating a landscape or abstract painting, and mixed media combines techniques, producing collages featuring anatomically correct stick figures.
Pupils may substitute in classes in Zentangle—a relaxing form of guided sketching designed to encourage meditation and relaxation—or card making—in which students will make high-quality custom cards to help celebrate Thanksmas. Sessions are available during the daytime and evening, but prospective painters must call ahead to learn when each class is available.
