Art can express a variety of human feelings, from joy at the birth of a child to confusion at the birth of a man-child. Eloquently articulate your emotions with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a three-hour watercolor-painting class and bring-your-own wine with Marty Spears (a $35 value). Classes are held at the Country Hearth Inn & Suites in Edwardsville from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on the first and third Friday of the month. Call ahead, as reservations are required. More classes will be added based on demand.

Marty Spears has been splashing canvases with vibrant watercolors for more than 20 years and now hosts Wine & Watercolor classes for aspiring visionaries and casually tipsy art fans alike. Small class sizes of no more than 16 painters allow for a personal experience with the adroit artist and fellow pigment-slingers. The master masterpiece-maker provides all supplies for the course, including the reference drawing, watercolors, paintbrushes, and a surrealist palette that morphs into farm animals when viewed from different angles. Paint through a step-by-step tutelage on the process of creating a watercolor magnum opus while sipping on a favorite bottle of liquid grapes. Marty recommends toting along a spouse or good friend to enjoy the artful evening at its maximum capacity. The three-hour course leaves painting pupils with a handmade creation to take home and a desire to recreate the Mona Lisa on the new shower curtain.
