Here’s an example… this is how the night started:
And this is how the night ended:
|What the...?!?! Not EVEN sure what's going on in this picture|
Anyway, I purchased the Groupon to Uptown Art in West Palm Beach for my sister-in-law for her birthday (which is also my birthday, lucky Frank! If he forgets either birthday, he’s in deep doo doo). I thought I would give myself a present as well. I paid $32 for a 3-hour painting class, regularly $70 – that’s more than half off!
The week we were scheduled to paint, Frank kept trying to get me to bring someone else. Once we started though, he was like Van Gogh, only without the whole cutting off the ear thing.
The instructors are great, very knowledgeable, and they had tons of suggestions for Frank and I painting the same picture as a couple. We could have upgraded to a larger canvas, so we could have worked on the same picture at the same time. Or, they said they would help us split the picture into two different canvasses. We opted to paint the same thing, but in different colors.
Our class was three hours, with about a half an hour break. You’re allowed to bring as much food and wine as you want.
|We thought three bottles per couple was reasonable.|
For a three hour time period. Okay, our judgment
may have been a bit off.
The best thing about Uptown Art isn’t the free paint, the nice staff, or even the final painting. It was hanging out and doing something different with the people I loved.
Total Cost: $32 for the Groupon and $30 for the wine
Best Deal: Making personalized art for half off the regular price
I had a great time at the class, but tell me the truth... If you had to sail off in a boat, would you pick the blue or the orange one?
