What You'll Get
Art is hard, especially when fortified by the flames of a sintering kiln. Make a piece of sturdy, ceramic eye candy with today's Groupon at I Am An Artist in Hollywood. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get to paint a piece of pottery (a bisque) with studio fee included (up to a $30 value).
- For $125, you get a create-your-own pottery party for up to 10 people (a $250 value).
I Am An Artist fosters a creative, café-accented venue for ambitious aesthetes to paint their own original artwork. Individual crafters can decorate a ceramic blank canvas (a bisque) by choosing from a plethora of unfired pieces (up to a $23 value), and daubing, pointilizing, or pollocking swathes of color across its nubile surface using lead-free paint, designs, and techniques from an included studio fee ($7). If the bisque you choose costs more than $23 you can use your Groupon toward the piece and pay the difference. After decorating your piece, the veneered vessel is finished in a kiln, emerging from its fiery womb as glossy, adorable, and confused as a newborn foal. Artists can receive their finished work at the shop or through the mail in the following week.
With a create-your-own pottery party, patrons paint alongside up to nine of their comrades-in-craft, creating crockery of all stripes in I Am An Artist's inviting storefront boutique. The party includes a bisque worth up to $18 per person, plus 2.5 hours of studio time, a host for the event, and room decoration to spark creative juices, and staunch creative juice overflow. After the clay settles, customers may keep their wares for display, or use them for household duties such as casserole armor, or as an ineffective swear jar filled with Canadian nickels.
- Opened in December 2009, the studio offers projects for everyone. – Brett Daly, Hollywood Gazette
