The existence of prehistoric pottery shards paints a clear picture of ancient artisanal practices while highlighting ancestral clumsiness. Leave behind traces of your own civilization with today's Groupon: for $20, you get an art-project package at I Made That! in Weeping Water (up to a $43 total value). The package includes the following:
- All-day studio time for one adult (an $8 value)
- All-day studio time for one child (a $5 value)
- Merchandise to decorate (up to a $15 value each)
At I Made That!, parents and children work as a team to create painted pottery and fused-glass artwork. Adult-and-child duos that choose to paint pottery during their studio sessions first select a piece to beautify, be it a puppy, a 12-inch plate, or a bust of Ross Perot. Artists have access to the studio's supply of paints for the day, and they decorate their masterpieces until their works are ready for the kiln.
Duos dabbling in fused glass can receive hands-on instruction on working with glass from the studio's staff. After absorbing the basics, patrons choose from such designs as a fused-glass necklace or a mosaic flowerpot, and then they select colored glass that best suits their artistic vision. After the session, the staff fuses glass and glazes and fires pottery. Creators may pick up their art in about a week or 168 hours, whichever comes first.
