Paint Your Own Pottery Events

No creative or artistic ability is required to create a great gift or make something for yourself. All supplies are included, and since you paint here, we’ll do the clean-up, too! Fun for all ages (children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times).

Full inventory available! Go to Splatters to register, select items, and schedule your session.

Saturday July 16, 1-4 pm
Saturday August 6, 1-4 pm

Brought to you by Karla Roberson, owner of Splatters Pottery Studio.

Painters ages 0-11 must be accompanied by an adult.

Participants will paint items during the scheduled event time, then leave them with the vendor. Splatters will glaze and fire your pieces offsite and then return them to the Recreation Center. You will be contacted when your item is ready to be picked up.

Please let us know the size of your group so we can plan adequate space for you!

* The Teen/Senior Center areas are currently closed to the public and we are not able to offer open, walk-in pottery painting at this time.
