Art can be used to express a range of feelings, from gouache paintings of sunflowers to depict happiness, to an installation of flashing lights and Styrofoam to convey to your flatmate that the bathroom is flooding. Channel your inner artist and express yourself with mosaic classes for the whole family at Scrapbook Creations for R120.
At Scrapbook Creations, the highly skilled and experienced instructors will guide your family through a comprehensive and easy to follow class where you will creatively mosaic a 30cm square mirror. Mosaic art, like ukulele music and Mid-West freestyle canoe dancing, is a severely underrated pastime, but the creative placing of ceramic tiles, mirror, glass and stone on a surface is no easy skill. With your family in tow, have hours of fun digging through the mountains of bits and bobs to find the perfect gem to place on the border of your mirror. Groupies will also be delighted with tea, coffee and cake as the class unveils some skills you never knew your family had.
This art form also never gets monotonous – depending on the level of complexity, it is easy enough for children to successfully accomplish, or can be challenging enough for a seasoned artist to shake his fists at the heavens.
After your exciting introductory mosaic experience, take your art home to display proudly on your mantelpiece or Batcave. The best part about this Groupon is that R5 goes towards the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) so you are doing your bit for your fluffy friends while having some mosaic fun.
