I love to try out new places and things to do with a Groupon. If you are not signed-up for Groupon, it’s basically discounted deals for restaurants, concerts, sports, goods, and even getaway trips! You can sign-up for Groupon here: http://www.groupon.com//raf/UserReferral_rp/121015/10r1act/lk/uu438796
I had purchased a Groupon for a local company in Carmel called A Paint Cellar. I purchased it some time ago as I’ve always wanted to try to paint my own picture and invited a friend to come with me.
The first step is to visit the web site and go to the calendar tab to find out which painting you would like to paint. You simply register online or on the Facebook page. When you go to the studio, arrive 10 minutes early so that you can gather up your supplies and find a spot to work at. The day that my friend and I went there was a commercial being filmed. Here was the final product at this page http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-paint-cellar-carmel. The instructor guides you step-by-step through the entire painting.
I am not artistic, but here were my steps to creating the final piece:
It was so much fun to go and create a work of art to put in my home. The Paint Cellar offers free non-alcoholic beverages while you are there, but they also encourage if you’d like to bring your drinks and snacks for yourself or to share.
The Paint Cellar is located in Carmel, but they also have a location in Fortville. The Fortville location offers adult classes only for the time being. The Carmel location offers adult, kids, and teen classes even. If you want to book a private event such as a birthday party, bridal shower, bachelorette party, work party, a girls night out, or any other occasion, you can contact The Paint Cellar. They will even come to you for your private event!
I also had to mention the Carmel studio has a coupon offer for Kids Classes in the month of February. Use coupon code: LOVEKIDZ to take a class for only $10! The classes for kids are very reasonable and are geared towards ages 5-12. Younger kids can also take the class, but parents are asked to stay with the younger children. The Carmel location is located at: 581 S. Rangeline Rd. Carmel, IN 46032. Their phone number is: (317) 759-4278.
