The existence of prehistoric pottery shards paints a clear picture of ancient artisanal practices while highlighting ancestral clumsiness. Leave behind traces of your own civilization with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 toward paint-your-own pottery or mosaics at The Art Barn Studio in Joshua.
At The Art Barn Studio, knowledgeable staffers pair creatives with paints and tiles to personalize color-craving ceramics and crafts. Distract dinner guests from oversalted Jell-O with a plate, bowl, or platter stenciled, stamped, and painted in up to four colors. Pottery pieces ($9+) will be glossed with glaze, baked in a kiln, and potty-trained over the course of seven business days before they're ready to be brought home. Alternatively, mosaics allow tessellators to ornament picture frames, clocks, wall plaques, and more ($16+) with an array of colorful tiles. The Art Barn sends you and your glue-groggy mosaic home the same day with grout to complete your masterpiece once it has fully dried.
The Art Barn Studio
As a mother of three, Krystal Gray envisioned owning a studio where children and adults could explore their creative sides together. That vision materialized when she took over ownership of The Art Barn Studio, a place that lavishes visitors with all of the materials and inspiration required to create their own unique masterpieces. A cow-print storefront beckons creative minds into a colorful studio where friendly staffers—including seasoned artists and local high-school students—help guests to create and decorate custom works of art including pottery, mosaics, and jewelry. Artists who don't finish crafting their project or debating politics with their muse in The Art Barn Studio's regular operating hours—Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.—may pay a return-visit fee and finish it at a later time.
