Besides using a pottery wheel, the easiest way to manipulate clay is to threaten to rebury it in the dark, sandy hole where you found it. Paint clay instead with this Groupon.

Petroglyph Ceramic Lounge

Sick of buying expensive supplies and having to adhere to a class schedule just to create art, Jennifer Kurtz Rubin started the first of her chain of ceramic lounges in 1993. Each Petroglyph Ceramic Lounge is designed as a social and creative space, one that all customers can use to express themselves artistically while catching up with friends. The lounge throws open its doors for both kids and adults to decorate clay bisque pieces, such as mugs and salad bowls, with a bounty of colorful supplies, never worrying about cleanup afterward. Once they’re complete, the art pieces are glazed, fired, and ready for pickup in a few days. And because artists can stay for a whole afternoon or just 30 minutes, the lounge even grants a few moments of creativity to patrons with the busiest schedules. The company also goes beyond casual art making to host parties for kids and adults, in which they can bring in live music, serve food, and train scoops of ice cream to paint their own bowls.

Customer Reviews

This is a great company. They have a yearly pass at $28 bucks which is GREAT. Adults are $10 and children are $8 (rounded of course). The ceramic pieces are a bit pricey, but it is really fun and peaceful sitting there painting. My creative side comes out when I go to Petroglyph.

Petroglyph was so great! We had a really fun time, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and our projects turned out beautifully. This will become a regular date spot from now on.
