Pic-N-Paint Pottery's employees understand that many artists feel compelled to start work first thing in the morning, which is why guests sporting sleepwear get to paint ceramic pieces at a discount on Pajama Day. Pajama Day is just one element that embodies the studio's playful atmosphere, which sets creative minds into motion regardless of age or brushstroke skills. Visitors peruse a constantly changing trove of unpainted pottery pieces to glaze, paint, and fire in the kiln, fashioning their own personalized, hand-painted works to display at home or give to a loved one. The staff remains on-hand to supervise drop-in sessions and private parties, and ultimately fires the works of art in the in-studio kiln. In addition to paint-your-own-pottery sessions, Pic-N-Paint Pottery hosts various workshops that focus on drawing basics, such as sketching accurate nature scenes by referencing nude tree branches.
