Clay is a boy’s name as well as a creative medium, which can cause much confusion if a kindergartner says that “Clay is eating clay,” when in fact Clay’s clay creation is eating him. See an artistic vision come to life with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get two pottery classes at Creativity Art Studio, located in Orem (a $60 value).
Creativity Art Studio imparts passionate aesthetes with artistic skills—such as molding mud hunks into heat-hardened masterpieces—through flexible, family-friendly classes held Saturdays at 10 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. The first of this pair of two-hour pottery gatherings puts ample amounts of malleable earth and all manner of requisite implements in the hands of eager students, who learn to spin ornate pots, elaborate vases, and avant-garde coffee mugs. For the follow-up lesson, ceramic scholars grab palettes and paintbrushes to transform their kilned work into a multicolored masterpiece worthy of a museum pedestal. Call ahead to schedule a class time.
Creativity Art Studio
Walking into Creativity Art Studio is like walking into a sunset. Eyes fill with the golden and maroon hues of the walls, which foster tranquility in the mind so that students can explore their thoughts and express their dreams. Amid the colors, shelves of ceramics and painting supplies equip artists-in-training before they sit and let their imaginations travel across their chosen canvas with the guidance of a creative and adept staff.
Experienced creators can spread their wings solo, while those dipping their toes into artistic waters for the first time can use a stock of stencils. After each masterpiece has been touched up with its final details, staff experts guide patrons through the finishing process, whether that be waiting for the paint to dry or determining the best way to sneak sculptures into a museum display. Ceramic pieces stay behind for a glaze and stint in the studio's kiln, to ensure a lustrous piece that can be picked up roughly a week later.
