Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of self-reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve. Appreciate the figurative risks and transcendent joys of artistic creativity with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get $95 worth of art classes at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond. The value of this Groupon may be applied towards materials fees (typically ranging from $5–$35) and/or a class whose value is greater than $95.

The Visual Arts Center of Richmond offers more than 500 hands-on art-making classes to adults and children of all skill levels and philosophical leanings. Photography, glass art, jewelry-making, writing, drawing, and clay-spinning, to name a few, are all offered in classes of various length. Some classes are weeks long, while others last just a day. Budding Becketts can track down the Godot that serves as inspiration during the six-hour Writing Scenes & Monologues course ($90), while beginning loggers can discover if an ornate candleholder makes a sound with the Woodturning 101 course ($95). For eco-conscious clients, the Visual Arts Center of Richmond offers a solar plate printing class ($95), while the Embroidery in a Day course for beginners ($100) ensures that you'll never again be embarrassed in public due to your failure to master the French knot stitch. If an in-depth course suits your fancy, you may redeem your Groupon toward the value of a longer course, such as the five- to-six-week glass bead-making course (starting at $155), or a week-long landscape drawing course at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden ($180).

The friendly staff at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond includes a 75-person strong army of adjunct instructors, ready to lead brush-laden brigades of budding artists through the treacherous terrain of the imagination. Keep your hands out of the rabid jaws of your pockets by distracting them with an art class. Call ahead to schedule your class.

Visual Arts Center of Richmond

It's been more than half a century since the Visual Arts Center of Richmond was founded to engage the community through art, proving Virginia's creative community is as fruitful as it is inventive. In rotating exhibits that spotlight local and nationally recognized artists, the museum makes contemporary art accessible, relatable, and rarely covered in bees. But it's not all about established artists. VisArts makes classes for the community a priority as well, and programs include an introduction to blacksmithing for adults, fabric design, letterpress printing, and weekly art classes for both adults and kids that focus on cartooning, clay, photography, and simple jewelry.
