Artists always want muses without realizing they are a big responsibility, demanding regular walks, a ticket to every sunset, and smoothies made of old pastels and greek yogurt. Cultivate your creativity an easier way with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of paint-it-yourself plaster pottery, figurines, and knickknacks at Painting Fun Spot.
Painting Fun Spot invites aspiring Monets and seasoned artists to brush their original visions on functional and decorative plaster treasures. After selecting an item from more than 1,000 readymade plaster choices ($5.95–$23.95 each), guests give their objects masterpiece makeovers using nontoxic paints and sealants. The color dries in about 10 minutes, letting pigment wizards make quick getaways with their freshly painted creations. Each art piece can fulfill a number of domestic needs, from picture frames preserving treasured memories to googly-eyed Sillie Stonez eliciting giggles from even the most stoic pet rocks.
With no additional studio or hourly fees, Painting Fun Spot allows finicky finger painters to lavishly muse over their work, which should help deter granite-countertop graffiti at home. The studio provides all the required supplies, including paints, brushes, finishing sprays, glitter, and aprons, as well as booster seats and stepstools for wee ones.
Painting Fun Spot
Artist Mike Buszuwski wanted to create “an inspirational place for kids to come and explore art.” Thus, Painting Fun Spot was born. He and his artistic staff equip artists of all ages with all the necessary supplies—nontoxic, USA-made plaster pieces, paints, sealants, and paintball guns—to create colorful sculptures in a relaxed, kid-friendly studio complete with booster seats and pint-sized aprons. Vibrant walls and an undersea mural inspire creativity during studio time, summer camps, and parties and help budding artists bestow blank plaster canvases with hand-painted masterpieces.
Painting Fun Spot also hosts painting fun art classes, during which instructor Tonya Warnke Buszuwski, a professional artist with works in collections throughout the U.S., instructs adults in the finer points of pigment placement. She leads students step by step through a selected canvas work, capturing the tranquility of an impressionistic Tuscan countryside, the bold hues of a cross, or a trio of tulips playing poker with a basset hound.
