During his summer-camp days in Maine, a young Pablo Picasso showed an innate knack for poison-ivy treatment but scored low marks in working with popsicle sticks and finger paints. One-up pint-sized Picasso with today's Groupon: for $19, you get $40 worth of customized ceramic pieces and studio fees from Color Me Mine at your choice of one of their three locations, in Alameda, Fremont, or Lafayette. There is a studio fee, which covers all paints, supplies, glazing, and firing (this Groupon can be used toward the fee). At the Alameda and Lafayette locations, the fees are $7 for children and $10 for adults; in Fremont, they are $6 for children and $10 for adults.

Color Me Mine puts paintbrushes and pottery in the mitts of customers old and young. Budding Toyozo Arakawas will follow six easy steps to craft beautifully painted ceramics, first choosing a ceramic piece (most cost between $12 and $70) from Color Me Mine's selection of hundreds of seasonally changing items. After charting out the desired design from individual imagination or Color Me Mine's idea gallery, painters will select an underglaze from a cast of more than 50 colors, then apply paint with the focus of a peregrine falcon occupied by a Rockwellian spirit. Color Me Mine handles all kiln-firing work, allowing clients to take home their final products within three to five days.

Regardless of age or ability, customers will find Color Me Mine's ceramic-painting experience a rewarding dive into the creative process of an art form that dates back to the ziggurat-dwelling days of Mesopotamia. Get your Groupon and discover the East Bay’s ancient art world.


Color Me Mine ranked in the Top 10 Birthday Chains for Kid Birthday Parties according to Parents magazine. Yelpers give the Fremont shop a four-star average, and the Alameda location received a 3.5-star average from four raters:

  • There's an amazing array of colors, brushes, and stamps. – Parents
  • Just a great place for a chill girls night out - they call when your stuff is ready (usu very quick) and always have fun music playing. – Karen L., Yelp

Color Me Mine

Named one of Parents magazine's Top 10 Birthday Chains in 2010, Color Me Mine's international franchise of DIY ceramics studios cater to an older crowd as well. Hundreds of unadorned ceramic pieces—including vases, flatware, and busts of Elvis—await the attentions of muses of kids and their keepers alike, as do glazes in earthy tones and bright crimsons to frighten bulls away from china cabinets. Guests follow simple step-by-step instructions that leave plenty of room for creative expression. When painters are satisfied with their work, the professional kiln-workers help glaze and fire it for them before customers retrieve the finished piece a few days later.
