Rumour has it that canvases have tempestuous love affairs with paintbrushes, but are known to set aside dates for charcoal on the weekend. Encourage polygamous art supply relationships with today’s Groupon: a five-week art course for one, two or four people. Choose from the following:
- Pay R1400 for a five-week art course for one person, valued at R2800
- Pay R2240 for a five-week art course for two people, valued at R5600
- Pay R3360 for a five-week art course for four people, valued at R11 200
Teaching you to move from perceptual to conceptual thought, the five-week Mark Making art course encourages Groupies to channel their inner Picassos. Students are given the freedom to express themselves in any medium they prefer, from acrylics and charcoal to pastels and pens. Each lesson begins with a five-minute spontaneous drawing session and then an exercise in paint, inks, charcoal and other supplies. Using various processes, final artworks will be worked on over time to achieve their full potential. Art-junkies are also cheered on by imaginary cheerleaders to work and experiment with a range of mediums including photography, photo stating, drawing and many more.Students gain bonus points for keeping a visual diary which proves handy for developing ideas and gives most character when solo in the shade of lonely trees. Giving Groupon-holders freedom to express their inner-cranium functionings in a way they want, you’ll be able to bring along all your own materials, A2 paper and a surface that you prefer (glass, Perspex, wood, bark, etc.). Options are only limited to your imagination, your canvas for final work and the leprechaun that holds your art tools hostage.
