The class could have been shorter. Lots of history which is good until it was too long to pay attention to.

What You'll Get


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. through August. Starting in September, they’ll be held at the same time on Monday, Thursday, and every other Sunday.
