Hand-painted pottery has a rich legacy of storytelling, from the Grecian urns that document the perils of Orpheus and Eurydice to modern coffee mugs that foretell epic tales of the world's greatest grandpa.

The Coloring Room unearths inner artistes with a host of pottery painting events for both adults and kids. The cheerful studio is a great place to get friends together for a small ceramics gathering, ceramics rave, or first ceramics date rave. At BYOB pottery-painting gatherings, guests provide their own libations, and The Coloring Room supplies the paint, tools, and clay canvases, providing Groupon holders with their choice of any unfinished ceramic piece valued at up to $15. If you don't know how to paint, or only know how to paint the Venus of Urbino on a divan made of butter, the friendly staff can help you draw a stegosaurus or emblazon a mug with a well thought-out poem that faithfully represents your feelings about Monday. A color chart assists in the palette-constructing process, and unlimited use of paint, supplies, and instruction grants free rein for burgeoning Rembrandts to compose their earthenware masterpieces.
Upon completion, specimens are set aside to be glazed and fired, with guests returning a week later to reunite with their varnished vessels. Kids and grown-ups both love learning crafts, so get multiple Groupons and make it a family affair—or let loose with paint-slinging thrills on a girls’ night out or all-ages bachelor party.
