Art helps people reach a wide audience without shouting from the tops of radio towers, provocatively dancing behind local TV field reporters, or tying speech bubbles to migrating birds. Express yourself with this Groupon.

During classes, students create six pieces including four pendants, one bowl, and one tray. Instructors help artists design their work using materials such as pre-cut squares, pebbles, and crushed glass before students glue each piece in place and hand finished products over to teachers, who fire them in a kiln. Students return to pick up finished work a few days later.
Danielle's Paint-Your-Own Pottery Studio
After years in the IT industry, Danielle was ready for a change. Her tech-based clients seemed to be in perpetually foul moods, and she longed for days filled with smiles and the occasional inspirational conversation. She had always loved to paint, so opening her paint-your-own pottery studio felt like a natural way to fuse her passion for art with her desire to interact with people in a helpful way. Only one more thing was standing in the way of bringing her dream to life: a business partner, which she quickly found in her daughter Jennifer.
Together, this mother-and-daughter team runs Danielle's Glass Fusing and Contemporary Ceramics Studio. To inspire creativity in others, they stock the studio's shelves with more than 300 bisque pieces, including mugs, bowls, and figurines. The pair guides artists through the creation process, helping them use stamps, stencils, and each other's ponytails to paint personal masterpieces. When not glazing and firing their customers' finished artwork, the duo also teaches classes on fused glass and hosts special events such as birthday parties.
