Looking for a fun activity for your school, non for profit, camp, scout group or church outting?

Here's some general information on how it works!

Each package requires a minimum of 15 painters for outside events and 10 painters for in studio. Events usually take approximately 1.5-2 hours to complete depending on the age group. Pottery paint is non toxic and washable off cloths and skin, great for young painters looking to get messy. Handprints is another great option for young painters that have parents looking for a keepsake piece.
