BYOB Painting Class

In one of our recent surveys, a lot of members said they'd be interested in taking an art class together. Groupon is currently offering a deal on a BYOB (and food) paint class in New Haven, so let's do it!

Classes are usually $35, but with the Groupon the cost is only $17.50 for TWO ($8.75 each!). This includes a canvas and all the materials needed to make the painting. They have aprons we can wear, and we are encouraged to bring drinks and snacks. The teacher will guide us in painting this on a canvas (sorry it's blurry):

Don't worry if you have no experience - the instructor makes it incredibly easy! There will be music and chit-chat, and it's always a fun time.

INSTRUCTIONS:

To buy the Groupon, follow this link: https://www.groupon.com/deals/art-plus-studio-4. I already purchased one Groupon, so that is good for two people (I'll split it with whoever signs up first, and then everyone else can figure out who is going to purchase the coupon for each group of two people).

Once you've bought the Groupon, one person should register the two people in their group for the class by calling Art Plus Studio at[masked]-7352. Tell them you have a Groupon to use - they will take your information (and the other person in your group's name) and put you on the schedule. There are two classes going on that night, so be sure to sign up for the painting of the tree. The Groupon code doesn't work on their website, so it has to be called in. I did this the last time I went and it worked just fine. Be sure to bring the printed out Groupon with you to the class.

Hope to see you there!

 

NOTE: The Groupon deal has changed and is now $20 for two people, which is still a great deal!!

    Glad everyone had fun and that you were all able to finally get in. I really wish the woman running it wasn't such a crazy Groupon Nazi haha - would make things a bit easier! But all your paintings are lovely :)

    You should all be in the same group! The Christmas tree one. If they're trying to separate it tell her you purposely bought Groupons to go together

    January 8, 2014

  • Matt

    We're totally in two separate groups

    January 8, 2014

  • Samantha

    GUYS!! It looks like I might not be able to make it on time with my kitty/vet situation. Is there anyone who would want to take my place? Emily - I'll email you the groupon so you have it in case I can't get there.

    January 8, 2014

    • Samantha

      Kevin will be taking my place - be sure to keep an eye out for him :)

      January 8, 2014

  • Samantha

    I will be in New Haven right at 5 because I work here - anyone in the area want to grab a quick dinner before the class? There are lots of places nearby

    January 3, 2014

    • Samantha

      Let's do it! Meet right around 5? And anyone who wants to join is welcome to!

      January 8, 2014

    • Samantha

      Crap I forgot I have to pick up Oliver from the vet right after work!! I'll make it back just in time for the class

      January 8, 2014

  • Samantha

    Hey all! Don't forget to print out your Groupon to bring with you, and remember your wine and snacks! It's going to be a great time :)

    January 7, 2014

    Anyone wanna split a groupon ticket with me?

    1 · December 18, 2013

    • Samantha

      Brian, you should be able to email it to her (or me). If not, see if you can scan or fax it to me.

      January 5, 2014

      Already emailed to her! Thanks for taking care of the rest. I really appreciate it.

      January 5, 2014

  • Shainamarie<3

    Anyone still need a ticket? Brian can't make it so there's an extra spot.

    January 5, 2014

    • Courtney

      I'd still like to come! :)

      1 · January 5, 2014

    • Samantha

      Great! I made the reservation for them so I'll call and let them know you'll be taking Brian's place. See you soon :)

      January 5, 2014

  • Courtney

    But now that I've gotten the code, the class is full. Guess I'll be missing this one!

    January 3, 2014

    • Heather

      There's 2 classes on the 8th. One is full but the one we're all doing (Christmas tree) has a few spots left. I just registered and it went through. Wish I'd seen this before though; I could have used the promo code!

      January 3, 2014

    • Samantha

      I'm impressed! How much of a discount does the code offer? I tried to get us a discount for a class of our own and the girl I talked to would have none of it! So I told her we'd all just get the Groupon and come to the same class anyway haha. If you want to sign up for a different class, feel free to do so and add it as a new meetup - I'm sure other members would be interested! And I might go too (it's so fun lol)

      January 4, 2014

  • Courtney

    I'm emailing the organizer to try to get a group discount code for those of us who missed the groupon (or accidentally bought a different groupon, ahem... like me...).

    January 1, 2014

    • Courtney

      I didn't mention the groupon people, so she gave us a code :)

      January 3, 2014

    • Courtney

      Promo code: MEETUP

      1 · January 3, 2014

  • Heather

    I just checked the link and there are groupons available again for $22.50 for two.

    Is there anyone going (or thinking about going) who still wants to get in on the deal and split it with me?

    January 3, 2014

    • Samantha

      Still a great deal, though! The class is usually $40

      January 3, 2014

    • Courtney

      That's only for the glass painting class. I did manage to get a discount code: MEETUP

      1 · January 3, 2014

  • Lisa

    So im getting out of work at 6 this day...so i actually wouldnt be able to make it to NH for 6:15. I partnered with jessica who has the groupon, does anyone want to take my spot?

    1 · January 2, 2014

    • Danielle

      I left a voice mail to them just to confirm. So are people brining wine and things? I looked at the website, they do not provide anything.

      January 3, 2014

    • Samantha

      Yes, people are bringing wine and snacks. They provide cups.

      January 3, 2014

  • Danielle

    This will be my first meetup with the group

    1 · January 2, 2014

      The groupon is sold out, but there are still eight spaces open for the event. I'm gonna call on Friday (when they open) and make a reservation.

    December 26, 2013

    • Samantha

      Hey! The Groupon has expired but you are welcome to join at the regular price (it's more expensive). If you want to do that, go to the Art Plus Studio website and sign up for the January 8th tree painting class. Hope to see you there!

      December 26, 2013

    • Samantha

      Scratch that! Looks like it's still available at $20 for two people now. I think Zeus and/or Morgan still need a partner so feel free to reach out to them!

      1 · December 26, 2013

  • Morgan

    Ok...I'm late to RSVP, anyone need a partner? :)

    December 21, 2013

  • Jessica

    Ahh I still need a partner! It isn't too late, is it?

    December 20, 2013

    • Jessica

      Not sure if you got my email, but could you make the reservations?

      December 20, 2013

    • Lisa

      Yes of course!

      December 21, 2013

  • Zeus K.

    I'm in,but I don't know how can I get a ticket and I need a partner.

    December 21, 2013

    • Samantha

      Follow the link in the event description to get the ticket. Morgan will be joining us, so she can split it with you :)

      December 21, 2013

  • Lisa

    Anyone still looking for a partner for the groupon? :)

    1 · December 19, 2013

  • Susan

    I'd be in if someone would like to share a groupon ticket!

    1 · December 18, 2013

    • Samantha

      I can't paint at ALL! I did one of these and the woman makes it so easy. So we can all feel fancy and artsy when we're done ;)

      December 19, 2013

    • Matt

      Haha alright sounds good.

      December 19, 2013

  • Ad

    wish this was on a weekend!

    December 18, 2013

    • Samantha

      Sorry! The groupon is only for Wednesday classes :( but I'll keep an eye out for future deals!

      December 18, 2013

  • Samantha

    Make sure you all chat with each other to figure out who is going to get the groupons and call in! Looks like Emily is my date for the evening (don't be jealous).

    1 · December 18, 2013

  • Samantha

    Please note that the date has changed! This is scheduled for Wednesday, January 8 (instead of January 29 - that date didn't work with our Groupon). I know it's the day after book club, but it should still be fun for those who can make it!
