What You'll Get
During his summer-camp days in Maine, a young Pablo Picasso showed an innate knack for poison-ivy treatment but scored low marks in popsicle sticks and finger paints. One-up pint-sized Picasso with today's Groupon: for $19, you get $40 toward customized ceramic pieces and studio fees at Color Me Mine. This Groupon is only valid at the San Jose location, but can be either used on your own or shared with a friend. Plan ahead for upcoming man-parent holidays by crafting personalized gifts instead of settling for one-size-fits-all windsocks.
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 under $35) 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 Color Me Mine's 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. This Groupon also includes the studio fee (or fees if you share this Groupon), which will get you a full day's worth of supplies and studio use.
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 San Jose's ancient art world.
This deal is not valid for parties or on major holidays.
