Paint & Clay Studio (Plus: A Giveaway!)

You know I try very hard to keep up with "goings on" around these parts and I found very few "goings on" for this weekend. So that makes it a perfect weekend to load up the family and try something new.  Today, I just want to share a fun thing that you can do in Montgomery that you may not have known about.

Paint and Clay is a paint-your-own-pottery (and canvas) studio in Montgomery. If you've never been to a paint-your-own-pottery studio, here is how it works: You pick the pottery piece you want to paint, choose your paint colors and create your own one-of-a-kind piece of artwork. It's for all ages.

Paint and Clay Studio has a huge selection of bisque pieces to choose from, starting at $10.00 + tax.
Price includes pottery, paint, glaze, and kiln-firing of the item. They'll even add your name and a date for FREE! Studio hours are 11am -6 pm Monday through Saturday.

Paint and Clay does parties (or groups)! The pricing makes it easy, too: it’s simply the cost of the pottery piece per person (starting at $10 per piece), with an 8-person minimum. There are no hidden fees, and the required $20 deposit is deducted from the final cost of the party. The birthday party includes a special keepsake plate for the guest of honor that all the party attendees help decorate.

Paint and Clay can also help you create a beautiful work of art on canvas for yourself for to give as a gift. Come in any time during open studio hours (11am to 6pm) Monday-Saturday and they will help you paint any of the canvas projects that you want to do. You know all those cute handprint and footprint paintings that you've been pinning on Pinterest but will never get around to doing because of the mess? Paint and Clay can do those for you. You just bring the hands and feet!

Thursday nights are Family Painting Night at Paint and Clay! Each week features a different painting with step by step instructions. Paint and Clay does birthdays, church/scout groups, daycares... anyone who wants to paint together can have a party!

This Easter start a new tradition. Paint a pottery egg and pass it down for generations. The eggs are $12 each or 3 for $30. Fill your basket with precious eggs painted by your little ones.

You definitely want to follow Paint and Clay on Facebook because they sometimes run specials (like 10% off a pottery item) and announce them only on Facebook. All Facebook fans of Paint and Clay can get $5 off a canvas painting. Canvas paintings start at $20 for 8x10.

One River Region Family reader will win a $20 gift certificate to use at Paint and Clay on pottery or canvas.
