Art classes were originally invented to keep young cavemen from mischievous pastimes like stalagmite fighting and bat tipping. With today’s Groupon: for $22, you get two adult pottery classes, each two hours long, (a $45 value) at Earth & Soul Pottery, located at the bottom of Munjoy Hill. Call ahead to reserve studio time as class space is limited.
Acclaimed artist with 12 years of teaching experience, Sarah Sorenson-Coppi inspires aspiring potters through four hours of instruction in the back of her Portland gallery. Throughout the instruction, would-be pottsmiths, from all skill levels will learn the fundamentals the craft and create customized ceramic souvenirs through small class sizes limited to 6 students. Individualized classes are relaxed and tailored to each student, letting ceramic enthusiasts create a mosaic masterpiece, sculpt a stunning platter, or spin cylindrical pieces on the wheel, such as a vase, bowl, or bowling ball display case. Glazing and firing pieces to a shiny sheen is included in the deal and lets keepsakes tug on smile strings for years to come, or until smiling is done for you by robo butlers.
