Artists always want muses without realizing they are a big responsibility, demanding regular walks, a ticket to every sunset, and smoothies made of old pastels and Greek yogurt. Cultivate your creativity an easier way with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pottery painting, mosaic making, or jewelry making at Artful Adventures on Hartsel Drive.
Artful Adventures is a family-oriented public art studio in which aspiring artists can make a variety of creative crafts using only safe, non-toxic materials. On a rainy afternoon or sunny night, bring your entire clan to the studio for a cozy bout of pottery painting, first selecting a hue-ready ceramic piece to paint, then dressing the piece in a vibrant design using any blend of Artful Adventures’ 66 food-safe glaze colors, stencils, sponges, and stamps. After you've finished, one of Artful Adventures’ skilled staff members will place your piece in the finishing flames of the kiln. If you don't want to wait a week to receive your fired artifact, opt for a day of mosaic making, using glue and extreme creativity to transform loose tiles into inanimate animals, shapes, and images of filing cabinets. For gals and accessory-savvy guys seeking bonding activities, invite a whole group of pals to the studio for a Friday night of glass fusing and jewelry making.
Artful Adventures doesn't charge a studio fee, and all glazes, painting supplies, and firing services are complimentary. Customers only need to purchase their primary supplies, such as raw pottery pieces to paint (starting at $1.50 for a magnet), mosaic-making kits (starting at $14; kits include all glass and glue), and kits for glass earrings ($20, includes hanger) and necklaces ($15; includes hanger, but not chain or choker). Popular pottery pieces include small animals ($13), mugs ($14–$18.50), plates ($18.50–$28), and dog bowls ($17–$21) for pet pooches or teen-wolf houseguests.
