With a bevy of samples, stencils, and friendly advice, Outside the Lines helps lubricate the creative engines needed to craft one-of-a-kind pottery masterpieces. Dish decorators and bowl bedazzlers can take their pick of more than 275 pieces of unadorned pottery waiting patiently to be outfitted with strategically placed dollops and streaks of paint available in more than 90 colors. After choosing from a selection of dinner plates ($14), mugs ($13+), cereal bowls ($14), dog bowls ($17+), and animal figurines ($11–$22), blossoming artists plan a design strategy and apply a base coat. Classes in watercolors, drawing, or clay are available for participants to hone their artistic expression without painting a self-portrait on the neighbor’s front door. The two-hour Throwing is Good class ($25), held three times each month, introduces children and adults to the pottery wheel and allows each students to mold their own custom piece just like a set of dazzling brass dentures.
