So you all know how I'm a little obsessed with Groupon right...? And I was obsessed with them before it was the cool thing to do, just remember that!
For Mother's Day this year I bought my mom and I groupons to PaintBar. I had never heard of this phenomenon, but let me tell you, it's totally worth full price.
We arrived to find canvases, paints, brushes, easels, aprons and art stools waiting patiently for our arrival. The young and fun instructor walked up on the platform and demonstrated, step-by-step, how we could paint something somewhat nice looking. Our evening's project was called "The Funky Tree."
Now let me explain a little bit that my mother went to 4 years of Art school! She went to college for ART!! Therefore, I did get major gift-awesomeness points in my corner, but going to a painting class with her where we were going to be painting the same picture...I was not holding high hopes for my outcome.
Ok, so I'm not going to sit here and tell you that with the wonderful instructor's exact instructions that I was able to come up with this amazing museum quality masterpiece, because that would be total BS.
Bachelors Degree in Economics aside, it came out well enough to hang in a bathroom or perhaps a closet... :)
I will however tell you that my favorite part of the whole thing was looking around at the end and seeing how everyone listening to the same instructions came up with something a little different.
Another Groupon Success for sure! Add it to the Mother-Daughter memory books.
