Watercolor Art Class + Salsa & Sangria...
From Van Gogh's vibrant still lifes to Warhol's soup cans, food has been inspiring artists for centuries. Hang a gourmet masterwork in your own kitchen with this offer from LivingSocial's 918 F Street: Pay $35 for admission to a hands-on watercolor art class from Marcella Kriebel, a Washington-based artist and author. After traveling throughout Central and South America, Marcella created Comida Latina: An Illustrated Cookbook to share the regions's vibrant colors and flavorful recipes through art. Using prints taken from the cookbook, you'll use watercolors to paint recipes for Salsa Verde and Pasilla Salsa. And since this really is about the food, you'll also get to snack on the salsas you're painting and enjoy a refreshing glass of sangria. It's food for the soul and your walls.
Kate Lee at 918 F Street

Put your spuds out to play this summer break with today's blossoming experience from LivingSocial's 918 F Street: admission for one child and one parent to a hands-on lesson in the art of gardening. Kate Lee of Capital City Farm Co. will sow the seeds of excitement as kids use paint markers and googly eyes to decorate their own pot. Then -- with Mom or Dad's expert help -- they'll plant two edible herbs (think basil or oregano). Kids will learn all about growing healthy plants, the cycle of life through composting, and more -- and you'll have gotten your young environmentalist's hands off the remote and into the dirt.
