In a Nutshell

Small classes learn history of metal-manipulating art mediums before crafting their own steel or aluminum masterpieces.

The Fine Print

Promotional value expires Nov 7, 2012. Amount paid never expires. Limit 8 per person. Limit 8 per visit. Valid only for option purchased. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

Art helps people reach a wide audience without shouting from the top of radio towers, provocatively dancing behind a local TV field reporter, or tying speech bubbles to migrating birds. Express yourself with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $69 for a Melding with Welding beginners’ welding class (a $300 value)
  • $69 for a Pinching Giacometti steel-sculpting class (a $300 value)
  • $69 for a Torching a Motherwall aluminum-sculpting class (a $300 value)<p>

Each five-hour metal-manipulating class, which includes all necessary materials, begins with a lecture on the history, innovations, and artistic techniques of the chosen medium. Afterwards, six to eight students follow along as the instructor demonstrates how to weld a flint and bone sculpture to a stainless steel stand using tungsten inert-gas (Melding with Welding), bend steel into the form of an abstract humanoid in the style of Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti (Pinching Giacometti), or paint a piece of aluminum using a gas torch (Torching a Motherwall). An included glass of wine stimulates creative impulses, and after an end-of-class critique, students return home with their creations in tow.

All three classes are offered Monday–Thursday and every other Sunday beginning at 5 p.m. throughout the summer.<p>

Vesper

The encouraging instructors and professors at Vesper, an Atelier of Fine Arts, sharpen students’ understanding of design and bolster their respect for ecological balance. With a two-year curriculum, the school's diploma program in ecological sculpture guides participants through such disciplines as interior design, landscape design, construction management, and public-installation art. The school also hosts classes for the community, encouraging people to explore various forms of sculpture using metal, stone and wood.
