Art projects are a peaceful diversion from work, especially when work involves breaking into scientists' homes to demand all the digits of pi. Safely increase the number of creative pursuits in your life with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of studio time and project supplies at The Mud Shack in North Wales.
The Mud Shack's crafty coaches assist aspiring artists of all ages in creating an array of glass and pottery projects. Comprised of a necklace, ring, and earrings, the fused-glass jewelry set emerges from the kiln ready to adorn necks, pointers, and lobes ($20), and more than 100 au naturel white bisque pottery pieces await a colorful coat of painted-on modesty as they streak on the green party shelves ($20). Inhale and exhale carefully as you breathe life into a clay animal figurine, sculpting critters such as a turtle, an elephant, balloon monster, or a tapir ($20).

A fused-glass peace sign dangles in a window, its iridescent blue-and-green hues catching glimmers of sunlight. Elsewhere, a shiny yellow-and-black dog formed from clay smiles from its painted-on mouth. These are just two of the many artistic projects students can tackle at The Mud Shack, an art studio brimming with classes in glass fusing, ceramics, and pottery painting. Working artists helm the sessions, guiding pupils toward creating their own magnum opuses in the form of a hand-thrown vase, a mosaic tile, or a mug for holding smaller mugs.
