While left-brained thinkers tend to analyze problems logically, right-brained creatives prefer to douse them with paint and turn them into table art. Let right-brained ideas reign with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of paint-your-own pottery at Paint the Town in University Village.
Paint the Town fosters fledgling artists within the kiddie-friendly confines of its studio, providing all the tools and supplies required to create a personalized, one-of-a-kind ceramic masterpiece. Choose from hundreds of pigment-less pieces, ranging from blank ceramic bowls ($20–$50), platters, and vases to whimsical models of cars, dragons, unicorns, and John C. Calhoun ($13–$30). Brush wielders map out the perfect warm, cool, or bold color palette with Paint the Town’s selection of earthenware-ready shades, frescoing to their heart's, hand's, or exceptionally coordinated foot's content before passing the newly tinted treasure off to a staff member ready and waiting to seal in its custom chromaticity.
Politely remind your iguana to feed the dog with a message on his morning mug ($18–$25) or paint your own mug on a plate and give yourself a spaghetti-stache ($17–$30). Included in the price of each item are paint, glaze, and firing in a kiln, and each magnum opus is ready for pick-up in five to seven days.
