Crafting your way into someone's cupboard is the craftiest way into his or her heart. Craft away with today's deal: for $20, you get $40 worth of pottery painting and glass fusion at The Artist in You. The creation station is located at The Summit. This Groupon's value covers the cost of the studio fee ($8 for adults or $6 for kids under 12), so you'll be left with $32 to apply toward the ceramic or fused glass of your choice. With today's Groupon, you can also get 10% off one week of summer camp.
The Artist in You's gigantic selection has 300 to 400 paintable pieces. Popular items include a round-rim dinner plate ($24), regular coffee mug ($13), cupcake box ($13), swoop sushi or salad plate ($18), and more. After you've sketched your design, simply select under-glaze colors and paint however you'd like. Leave your piece for firing and pick up the completed masterpiece in a week. For an alternative creative fix, try glass fusion. The careful application of heat to glass morphs it into a twistable, taffy-like consistency. Bend, shape, and slump molds to create bowls and unusual shapes that resemble the unusually large bathroom mirror in the U.S. Treasury building. Glass-fusion bases range from $12–$60 depending on size, and there is a $6 slumping fee per item.
The Artist in You's cheerful studio is a great place to get together with friends, take a significant other or best friend to determine if you're color compatible, or amuse an imaginative cousin. Milk creative juices or encourage friends to tap back into their Crayola days by purchasing multiples for buddies. The Artist in Me's studio is open daily, with extended hours until 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
The Artist In You
Discovering the mission of The Artist In You is as simple as reading its name—to help every guest unleash their creative side. A knowledgeable staff guides participants through pottery-painting and glass-fusing experiences. Hundreds of pieces of pottery, ranging from dishes to tiles to figurines, await personalization from paint, fingerprints, stamps, stencils, and image transfers before taking a toasty trip into one of the studio's three kilns. Bits of colorful glass gain new life during fusing sessions in which visitors can assemble gleaming jewelry or prismatic plates. The studio hosts private birthday parties, bachelorette gatherings, fundraising events, and children's camps, and individual walk-ins are allowed during all of these events.
