The creativity required to build your own omelette results in a product that will be immediately ground to bits by your mouthbones. Create a more enduring self-expression with today's Groupon: for $15, you'll get $30 worth of pottery painting, events, wheel-thrown pottery, classes, and anything else at Practically Pikasso in St. Petersburg. Practically Pikasso has open studio hours for painting your own pottery and classes in a myriad of mediums for skill levels ranging from Cassat to Crayola.
From tie-dye ($35 per child) to garden-themed parties ($25), Pikasso's children's classes fresh-squeeze creative juices for the grade-school set. During a feet-print-platter class ($45 per child), kids create an adorable plate marked with their footprints. Adults can hone painterly techniques at clay, fused glass, or wire-wrapping and beaded-jewelry classes. Wheel-thrown pottery classes, taught by an expert potter, are available at $50 per person for a two-hour session (two-student minimum). Offsite events and parties add color to corporate events, birthdays, and home fumigations, and Practically Pikasso can supply 20–200 painters with supplies, helpful staff, and instruction (call ahead to inquire about costs).
Decked out in more hues than a Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper, Practically Pikasso's funky studio inspires budding artistes six days a week (it's closed on Tuesdays). Memorialize the dainty digits of an after-school dance troupe, stop by during studio hours to paint your own pottery, or recreate thrilling scenes of an '80s action-drama amid spinning pottery wheels.
