Cultivate your creativity an easier way with today's Groupon to Visionary Artware in Long Beach. Choose between two options:
- For $42, you get an introductory mosaic class or three hours of studio time (an $85 value).
- For $10, you get $20 worth of merchandise at the gift shop.
Master mosaic mistress Mina Barnes brings years of experience to her studio classes at Visionary Artware. The 4.5-hour intro class is designed to teach basic tile and grouting techniques in addition to demonstrating how to hand-cut and place custom-glazed tiles to create a personalized 12"x12" stepping stone. Beginners will also gain insight into effective grouting techniques during an hour-long session dedicated to the practice of artfully filling gaps between tiles. More advanced artisans can opt for three hours of studio time, utilizing Visionary Artware's array of materials, equipment, and knowledgeable resources to artfully assemble custom crafts in the inviting confines of Barnes' bungalow studio. Visionary Artware also features a gift shop and gallery filled with notions and knick-knacks from local crafters. Take home hand-glazed tiles (starting at $1.30), satisfy paper needs with a selection of journals (starting at $14.95) and stationery (starting at $2.95), or reclaim boots for your feet with a handmade ceramic vase (starting at $14.95).
