For 50 years, the owners and staffers of Plaza Artist Materials & Picture Framing have encouraged the artists of their community. They visit local fairs and set up booths for kids to color and craft, and they do workshops, demos, and classes for artists of every age. As their name implies, they also outfit art makers of all skill levels with top-of-the-line materials, such as Gamblin oil paints, Prismacolor pens and markers, and custom frames perfect for saving favorite art pieces or memorializing a sibling's failure to color within the lines.

Discovering the mission of The Artist In You is as simple as reading its name—to help every guest unleash their creative side. A knowledgeable staff guides participants through pottery-painting and glass-fusing experiences. Hundreds of pieces of pottery, ranging from dishes to tiles to figurines, await personalization from paint, fingerprints, stamps, stencils, and image transfers before taking a toasty trip into one of the studio's three kilns. Bits of colorful glass gain new life during fusing sessions in which visitors can assemble gleaming jewelry or prismatic plates. The studio hosts private birthday parties, bachelorette gatherings, fundraising events, and children's camps, and individual walk-ins are allowed during all of these events.
