Painting can be a cathartic therapy that relieves stress while adding beauty to the world, like grooming an ostrich or decorating the sky with mushroom-shaped clouds. Color yourself calm with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of paint-your-own pottery at ClayNation in Glen Cove. Tuesdays from 6 p.m.–10 p.m. are ladies' nights and are for adults only.
ClayNation gives aspiring and amateur artists a fun, creative atmosphere where they can paint provided bisqueware with a variety of vibrant paints and tools. Once you've singled out your makeover recipient from ClayNation's inventory of more than 300 pieces (ranging in price from $1 to $100), use the design center's idea books, stencils, and more than 70 colors of paint to translate the masterpieces of your mind into a visionary mug, plate, frame, and more. Adorn an urn with your favorite high-speed chase scene from The Benny Hill Show, or paint a mug in coffee-colored camouflage and convince coworkers you have the power to levitate liquids. Once you finish, they will fire up your piece in the kiln and return it to you fully matured within about a week.
ClayNation's open, bright studio lines its walls with the works of family, friends, and artistic apparitions. Camps and classes are available, as well as aid in creating mosaics to commemorate your mythic feats of strength and CD alphabetization. Walk-ins are welcome.
There is a flat studio fee of $8 per person not included with this Groupon.
