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: for $10, you get $20 worth of paint-your-own pottery at Pick & Paint Pottery Shop in Westbrook.
At Pick & Paint Pottery Shop, studio-goers can colorize raw ceramic forms with more than 70 kaleidoscopic paints and glazes. Pick & Paint Pottery stocks an eclectic array of bisques, ranging from simple mugs and plates to intricately designed vases ($1+). With brushes, glazes, stamps, sponges, stencils, and stickers at their disposal, customers creatively customize their ceramics, whether they want to adorn their pet bowls with canine imagery or paint Mike Ditka's scowling face onto teapots. The resident kiln operator then fires each piece, which can typically be picked up about a week later.
This Groupon can also be used toward enrolling artistically inclined whippersnappers in a five-day pottery summer camp ($170 plus tax). Choose from five sessions, each limited to 12 students and lasting from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day.
