Drawing Classes Deals in Montreal
Your mother always placed your finger paintings, crayon drawings, and clay figurines around the house with pride. It's been too long since you've displayed your own art, and this deal from Montreal Art Centre is here to replenish your home gallery: spend $49 for two one-year memberships as a Friend of the Montreal Art Centre (a $130 value). Membership includes an intro class in ceramics/pottery, drawing, painting, mosaics, or stained glass; 10% off all artwork for sale; special rental privileges galleries and lounges; and more. In your three-hour class, you'll learn to understand the clay medium through traditional techniques, use a brush to create vibrant paintings using a variety of subjects and materials, or explore your sketching skills. This Griffintown art centre even offers temporary and permanent work space for members, as well as the opportunity to display artwork in the galleries in a group or solo exhibition -- but your creations will look just as good on your fridge if you're too shy to share them with the world.
