Painting Pottery

A few months ago a dear friend moved across the country leaving us with all her Groupons. While M called dibs on the free massage, D and I went to Art Around the Corner to paint some pottery.. there was a large shelf full of various items that we could pick to paint.. I picked the gift box and D picked the treasure chest. He had a blast picking various paints and just going to town on the treasure chest.



We were to come back after a week to pick up the final product..





Since every inch of D's treasure chest was different I needed to take several pictures to even attempt to do it justice.. and he painted the inside too. Mine of course pales by comparison..

What a nice gift! I love the treasure chest--they keep bringing in better and better pottery shapes! Yours looks perfect for jewelry:)

Both turned out great IMO:) That treasure chest is just delightful, so D may have won a bit:D

These are such fun activities to do with kids. I love Crackpots, which is a place in my hometown that does this and hosts birthday parties. The kids always have a blast!

Oh I love the treasure chest, it is wonderfully colourful! Kitty's friends had a pottery painting party last year and she went to town with the colours in a similar way - it's the most vibrant elephant you ever saw!

Love your color for this project! I used to teach summer pottery classes and it was fun! Kids love to work with clay! Your kid done awesome job!

Oh how fun!

Those are adorable. I've always wanted to do that. Love the one your kiddo made :) Kid's art is so earnest and expressive, I love their confident bold strokes. They don't second-guess.
