Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve. Appreciate the figurative risks and transcendent joys of artistic creativity with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $35 toward pottery painting at Bella Pottery Painting Studio. While decisive decorators add color and design to their artifacts of choice (small figurines start at $5), insightful staff members lend creative vision to pot painters blinded by endless possibility. Hand paint a plate and give it to your favorite celebrity chef as a thoughtful and functional gift, or add your actual hand or footprint to a clay canvas to create a keepsake that will make all of the neighborhood moms swoon while reminding all the neighborhood bullies how big your fist is.
Bella Pottery Painting Studio
Sweeping brushes across three-dimensional clay canvases, artists at Bella Pottery Painting Studio work at their own pace to complete pieces while sipping on brought-along drinks—since the studio is BYOB. After picking a piece from the stocked shelves—including plates and mugs—artists add decorations and designs. All supplies are included, and crafty patrons can pick the brains of the studio's attentive staff, who are close at hand to give guidance and encouragement. About a week after visiting, artisans can pick up their completed projects, which are glazed, fired, and food-safe upon pickup.
