Things to do in Phoenix : Pottery PaintingWhen was the last time you sat down at a table and painted anything “just for the fun of it”?

There is something almost therapeutic in pottery painting. Perhaps it’s because the process is creative. You start with a blank slate, your chosen piece and by applying your imagination, the finished work is yours. It’s a wonderful way to spend a few hours alone, with a friend, with kids.

In recent years, several pottery painting stores (or “studios”) have opened up in the Phoenix area. These include As You Wish, with locations all over the Valley. For $8 ($6 for kids) plus the price of the pottery, you can paint to your heart’s content. Be sure to download and print the coupon from their website (see below) to save $2. They offer painting classes and party packages.

Paint on Pottery is charges a flat $6 per person. Pottery pieces average $15-$20, according to their website. They offer painting classes and party packages.

Create It! In Mesa, includes the painting fees in the price of it’s pieces (most are in the $20) range.They also offer party packages.

The Craft Retreat is an “all you can craft” type of studio with scrapbooking,, cracfting and mosaics available. The price of pottery painting is $7.50 plus the price of the piece.

By the way, all of the above studios include the price of “firing” (glazing) their pieces. This takes a couple of days, so be sure to allow the additional time if you’re on a schedule!
