Choose Between Two Options

  • $15 for $30 worth of walk-in paint-your-own pottery
  • $72 for a Monogram or Pizza and Picasso painting party for up to eight (a $144 value)

Guided by instructors, partygoers slather glazes on large bisque letters or brush acrylic paints onto 8"x10" canvases, potentially following a chosen class theme. Instructors also provide all paints and brushes. Parties are valid for birthdays and other get togethers and allow for up to eight participants, but more can be added for an additional fee of $18/person.

With nearly 100 colored glazes at their fingertips, visitors can create their own designs on bisque magnets ($5), small figurines ($6–$16), or a range of mugs, bowls, and plates ($8–$24) in shapes such as owls.

Art Smart Academy

Art Smart Academy After-School & Community Arts Center provides walk-in pottery painting with over 750 designs of bisque and over 100 colors to choose from. Staffers help children of all ages, including those with fully formed mustaches, exercise their creativity. They guide visitors through open pottery-painting sessions, themed painting parties, and adults-only painting workshops between the studio's bright lavender and sunburst yellow walls—often educating visitors in new artistic styles and terminology. The creative staffers also travel outside the studio as part of a mobile art-education program, and bring ample art supplies to outdoor painting parties. They also have a new Full-Time After-School Program with pick up from all local schools.
