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.
- $19.99 for a 3-hour Cocktails and Canvas class (a $40 value)
Each student gets an 16”x20” canvas with an outline of the evening’s chosen painting already sketched across it. Over one glass of wine and complimentary sodas and snacks (additional wine or beer available for purchase), the instructor helps students fill in the lines with vivid acrylic paints.
A nonprofit community arts center, VisArts fills its studios with artists learning techniques of creative expression, and acts as an exhibition opportunity for seasoned creators. Classes span a wide artistic spectrum, including concentrations such as ceramics and glass, many of which can be specifically tailored for the educational needs of children or resurrected Renaissance men in need of a new hobby. VisArts also enriches the community with a trifecta of galleries—the Kaplan, Gibbs Street, and Common Ground—and a thriving resident-artist program.
