Prehistoric pottery shards have painted a clear picture of ancient artisanal practices and our persistent ancestral clumsiness. Leave behind traces of your own civilization with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of studio time and paintable pottery at Created by You in Staten Island. Created by You allows aspiring artists of all ages to select a piece of color-craving pottery to slather with inspired painted designs. The resident potters instruct newcomers in paint layering as well as in the use of sponges, stamps, and transfer papers to festively festoon pottery with shapes and colors. Paint-happy Picassos have all the time they need to bring their ceramics to life—studio fees are $8 for adults, and $6 for children for the entire day—before the studio owner dips the finished product in a non-toxic, food-safe glaze and fires it for pick-up in five to seven days. A host of sculpted animals are available for brush-wielders seeking an immortal penguin, dog, or dolphin companion for their pet rock ($14 each). Those looking for a functional alternative can decorate a selection of plates, mugs, and bowls with deceptive pictures of the meals they will soon contain ($10 each).

Reviews

MommyPoppins favorably reviewed Created by You:

  • They have all the cool bells and whistles (stamps, sponges, contact and transfer papers) and will show you how to use them. They also offer mosaics and clay impressions crafting (hand and footprint keepsakes).

Created By You

At Created By You, visitors discover new depths of their creativity. Armed with a rainbow-array of supplies, guests make masterpieces on ceramic or canvas. When painting ceramics, painters first choose a blank white dish or figurine as their muse, and then adorn it with glaze. Though the glazes appear muted at first, they become vibrant in the kiln where high heat reveals their true colors, much like bringing a baby into a candy factory reveals its true selfish nature. For those trying their hand at painting, they can learn in a more structured canvas-painting class. During these sessions, they'll follow a teacher's step-by-step instruction to create a landscape or still life. Each student works on the same image, but in the end, every image is as unique as its creator. And the sessions are BYOB, so as artists realize their visions, they can also sip on their favorite beverage.

It was my first time at Created By You, and had a phenomenal time with my Sisters. I truly would recommend them with high standard of entertainment, teaching you step by step how to paint, and accommodating with all your needs, simply memorable.
