Choose from Three Options

  • $15 for $30 worth of paint-your-own pottery

Guests walk in and select from paint-your-own pottery items such as magnets ($5), small figurines ($6–$16), or mugs, bowls, or plates ($8–$14).

Each package includes all materials for eight guests to dig their hands into during the 90-minute parties.

Art Smart Academy

Wooden shelves teem with more than 750 designs of bisque pottery pieces that include small decorative bowls, plates, banks, and mugs shaped like owls. On nearby tabletop risers, glazes in nearly 100 colors sit next to stacks of brushes, sponges, stencils, and stamps. Art Smart Academy staffers help children of all ages, including those with fully formed mustaches, exercise their creativity. They guide visitors through open pottery-painting sessions, themed painting parties, and adults-only painting workshops between the studio's bright lavender and sunburst yellow walls—often educating visitors in new artistic styles and terminology. The creative staffers also travel outside the studio as part of a mobile art-education program, and bring ample art supplies to outdoor painting parties.
