DJ Ceramix made a name for himself by placing a slab of wet clay atop his turntable and spinning it into a beautiful vase by the end of his set. Impress the audience members of your life with today's deal: for $9, you get $18 worth of paint-your-own pottery at Alpha Fired Arts, located on Aldona Lane. This Groupon is valid for studio fees and basic bisque pieces, but it can’t be used for retail items or specialized pottery glazes and materials.
Upon arrival at Alpha Fired Arts, your creative process commences with your choice of a ceramic bisque piece from the studio's extensive collection of ready-to-paint artifacts, including plates, platters, cookie jars, and flower pots. Next, customers can dig into the depths of their thinking-box to come up with a design, sketch it out with pencil, and then select the glaze colors. If your creativity gets hit with a ceramic block, draw from Alpha's collection of stamps and stencils for inspiration as you craft your masterpiece. Work will be left behind for one final firing in the kiln, with the piece available for retrieving––and subsequent placement atop your bedroom's ceiling fan––shortly thereafter. After applying the first part of this Groupon to Alpha Fired Arts' studio fee ($9/adults, $7/kids), which includes the use of brushes, underglaze colors, stamps, and stencils, you can use the remaining value toward your ready-to-paint bisque piece (many are in the $5–$20 range).
Alpha Fired Arts' cheerful studio is a great place to get friends together for a small ceramics gathering, ceramics rave, or first ceramics date. If you don't know how to paint, or only know how to paint the Venus of Urbino on a divan made of butter, the friendly staff can help you nail down a vibrant visual. Grab three Groupons for friends or family members and enjoy a day of legal pottery painting with a trip to Alpha Fired Arts.
Though reviews are limited, four Yelpers give Alpha Fired Arts an average of five stars.
