The Painted Penguin is all about having a fun experience. They showcase the art of ceramics, inviting participants with any level of experience to unhurriedly paint their bisque and plaster pieces in the company of friends, family members, or birthday party guests. When designing their own pieces or attending any of The Painted Penguin's parties, customers can choose from over 3,000 pottery pieces and enlist the help of staff members, who are always on hand to provide tips or inspiration. Walk-ins are welcome, and guests can paint and take home their piece the very same day.
Inside Penguin Foot Pottery's large, bright working space, which also serves as a gallery for local artists, seven potters' wheels and two electric kilns invite the fingers and hands of adults and children to reach for the highest creative heights. Adults can train wayward digits to obey the wishes of the imagination in a hand-building class or learn how velocity and steady guidance can make a lump of clay turn into an elegant pot, vase, or model of a local shopping mall during beginning throwing (more proficient potters can opt for the intermediate/advanced throwing class). Kids' clay classes, offered at levels one, two, and three for artists ages 7–13, incorporate basic building and glazing techniques and produce new projects every week. Parent/child classes are also available. Classes meet weekly and most take place on weekdays. See the website for schedules.
Emily Smith gets her adrenaline rush not from roller coasters or scary movies but from the thrill of organizing a cluttered tupperware cabinet. Secretary of the Chicago chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers, Emily’s passion is helping customers simplify their lives. She emphasizes first decluttering nonessential items, then building an accessible, common-sense storage system. Emily can isolate her ideas and services to one room, make the entire home easy to navigate, or provide a simple maintenance package for past clients that includes checkup phone calls and a pop quiz on the history of the Trapper Keeper.
