Up to 75% Off Small, Medium, or Large Photo-Print Reproductions on Gallery-Wrapped Canvas from Picture It On Canvas

In the past, photo prints were done with a gigantic Polaroid, but they never developed properly because nobody was big enough to shake the massive canvases. Harness the power of the digital age with today's Groupon for a photo-print reproduction on gallery-wrapped canvas from Picture It On Canvas, including shipping and handling. Choose from the following options:

  • For $39, you get a 16"x20"x1.5" photo-print reproduction on gallery-wrapped canvas (a $110 value, plus $14.95 shipping; a $124.95 total value).
  • For $45, you get an 18"x24"x1.5" photo-print reproduction on gallery-wrapped canvas (a $145 value, plus $14.95 shipping; a $159.95 total value).
  • For $49, you get a 24"x30"x1.5" photo-print reproduction on gallery-wrapped canvas (a $178 value, plus $14.95 shipping; a $192.95 value).

With a quick, electron-enabled visit to Picture It On Canvas's product descriptions, customers can dive into the intersecting worlds of art, interior décor, and science. Snappers select a prize digital or analog photo from their archives and then use the online order form to begin the photomorphosis.

Picture It On Canvas's canvases are made of archival-quality material, which is thicker, more durable, and less likely to get stuffed into a roommate's back pocket and creased than the traditional photo-paper medium. Its thick-bar gallery wrap caresses the 1.5-inch-thick edges of pieces with a snug, canvasy embrace that's suitable for hanging without a frame. Customers can consult the FAQs with questions about canvases or to help determine whether the clouds above their homes are the cumulus variety.

Once upon a time, a bubblegum-pink catering truck was the only outlet for ShugaHill Ice Creamery's fried fare. Today, the catering truck continues to ferry burgers, barbecue, and seafood around town, but a brick-and-mortar eatery also doles out the sizzling eats. The eatery’s menu grants patrons artistic license over their plates, showcasing meal components such as mac ‘n’ cheese, smoky turkey wings, and po boys stuffed with oyster, snapper, catfish, or sole. Beneath the murals of various sweets that line the walls, main courses culminate in cool hillocks of ice cream, which delight any diner who hasn’t just lost a pet glacier.

Actors can communicate complex feelings in seconds, unlike supercomputers, which require volumes of binary coding just to express simple disdain. Succeed where the machines failed with this Groupon.

$75 for a Six-Week Beginning Acting for Non-Actors Class ($275 Value)

Acting for Non-Actors gives the stage-curious a taste of the craft in fun, supportive classes. 90-minute sessions delve into improv exercises, basic camera work, and scene work, aiming to build onstage connections, staying in the moment, and shedding self-consciousness.

Her stable of equally Meisner-steeped instructors leads classes including introductory adult courses, intensive courses for working thespians, and children's classes for young'uns looking to break into the industry early or convince babysitters they've been diagnosed with a life-threatening ice-cream deficiency.

2.5-Hour Introductory Beekeeping Class for One or Two at Round Rock Honey (Up to 68% Off)

Saturday, March 31st, 2012
2.5-Hour Introductory Beekeeping Class for One or Two at Round Rock Honey (Up to 68% Off)

Honeybees act as nature's cupid, spreading love from flower to flower by distributing pollen and buzzing the harmonies of Boyz II Men songs. Harvest the nectar of amorous blooms with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $45 for a 2.5-hour introductory beekeeping class for one (a $125 value)
  • $79 for a 2.5-hour introductory beekeeping class for two (a $250 value)

During the 2.5-hour beekeeping class, a master beekeeper educates students on honey-harvesting basics, offering an introduction to bees and information on hive handling. Participants don full beekeeper's garb—suits are provided—and gain hands-on experience at Round Rock's onsite apiary, conducting buzzing swarms of worker bees, even if the queen bee is on a diplomatic mission to discuss trade relations with tyrannical butterflies. Beekeeping pupils can tote cameras and should protect appendages by wearing blue jeans, long-sleeve shirts, and boots or other ankle-covering shoes. Check out the downtown and Redwood City class schedules here.

Round Rock Honey

Named Best Honey in 2008 by the Dallas Observer, Round Rock's 100% natural local wildflower honey is harvested from more than 90 sites by owners Konrad and Elizabeth Bouffard and their crews of trained beekeepers. With precision, they remove the liquid gold from hives by centrifuge, ensuring that pollen, trace minerals, and complex sugars are never compromised during the honey harvest. They then pour the honey through a stainless-steel sieve to remove potential bee legs and wings, wax caps, and miniature tiaras before bottling it and selling it to specialty stores, farmer's market visitors, and online customers.

A similar procedure happens in other parts of the country at Round Rock's beekeeping schools. During 2.5-hour classes, Konrad Bouffard and Beekeeping Academy teachers impart their beekeeping knowledge upon suited-up students while they extract honey from a live beehive. Along the way, novices learn about the finer points of raising bees and keeping them healthy, as well as bee handling and lullaby-buzzing.
