Creativity can strike at any moment, whether you're near a canvas and brushes or beside a slumbering strongman and many rolls of toilet paper. Learn to recognize opportune moments with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a two-hour art class, which includes dessert and a glass of wine at Uncork'd Art (up to a $50 value).
The artsy agents at Uncork'd Art tap into each adult guest's inner Matisse with relaxed yet informative painting sessions held amid an airy, brightly lit workshop. Aided by a glass of wine and a tasty house dessert, artists put a personal spin on the inspiration piece at the center of their "just for fun" lesson as designated by the studio's art schedule. Canvassers can elect to attend any session that piques their interest, with choices ranging from landscapes and portraits to modern reinterpretations of Van Gogh's first foray into finger-paint. During the two-hour lesson, instructors advise novice visionaries on the necessary brushes, paint hues, and strokes, meaning no previous artistic experience is needed in order to create a personal masterpiece. Much like an operating room run by remodernist filmmakers, the studio shies from perfection, hoping instead that the jovial atmosphere fosters fun and releases pent-up imagination within all who participate.
Uncork'd Art's instructors invite artists of all skill levels to let their creativity flow while practicing no-pressure painting. During their adult classes, experienced local artists unlock latent talents with a complimentary glass of wine, a brought-from-home snack, and muses equipped with brass knuckles. Instructors lead students in painting experiments during Just For Fun sessions, and provided materials allow for the creation of acrylic-adorned masterpieces. Throughout the 6-week art- and wine-appreciation course, students learn theories and techniques, sample fragrant vinos, and produce three finished paintings. Uncork'd also offers private parties for groups of 10 or more, as well as happy-hour classes, which include helpful instruction with complimentary wine and supplies. Prospective pupils can schedule their next creative frenzy by perusing the online calendar.
