What’s on your heart?

This sweet couple, Tim & Mariana, painted this “heart with wings” plaque to display at their upcoming wedding.     So, what’s on YOUR heart?   Bring in family and friends or paint with a sweetie this month…or paint FOR a sweetie this month.     Our ceramic keepsakes are memories you can sign, date, incorporate a personal design, or just cover with specialty glazes which don’t need design work to them.

Pottery painting is completely beginner-friendly and kid-safe.

Our glazes are non-toxic and lead-free.  Handprints, anyone?

On Valentine’s Day, we hold an annual event that is always quite popular.   It seems people want to make memories and are looking for an interactive, creative way to do that…  therefore: PIcassoZ.   Mosaics are popular that day also, since they go home with you.   So plan to join us on Tuesday, 2/14, as all the tables in our building…upstairs in the Party Loft too, will be available for painters, making chunky candles, clay jewelry & mosaic’ing.    We dont accept reservations, its walk-in only.

There’s still time to paint a gift for Mom, as our deadline for firing pottery is Tuesday, May 3rd.

Mother’s Day painting deadline is May 3rd

Paint a keepsake for Mom through Tuesday, May 3rd and it will be completed and ready for pick up no later than Saturday, May 7th.   Handprints, footprints, special memories, names…we know Mom, and she’s just happy you thought ahead and took the time to make her something special this year.    No art experience needed, we have stamps, stencils, sponges, and crystal glazes which are easy to use and just as fun!

FIRING UPDATE:  We had a crazy spring break and our firing took longer than normal because we had to relocate our kiln room to another part of our building!    Yep!  Tea Largo, our contemporary tea & coffee bar, has grown at an insane pace this past year and needed our kiln room for expansion in a hurry!   (Got to love the timing.)   So, we have 2 ceramic kilns now, back in business and turning pottery around in about 4-7 days or so, depending on what time of the week it is!    If you need it rushed sooner, just ask.

If you’d like to bring Mom for a memorable Mother’s Day 2016, join us for pottery painting, mosaic or candle making May 7-8, with extended hours and open seating in all 4 of our spaces on Sunday!   We always have a little gift we give Moms who paint or make mosaics with us Mother’s Day weekend every year.      **Chunky candles & mosaics go home same day.

Sincerely,

Kristin

 

Welcome to Spring Break 2016

We are so excited it’s here too!   We have plenty of beach, spring and Easter themed bisque for you to paint this week!   Tea Largo has been hoppin’, too…with a freezer full of PopCraft’s famous ice pops (Roasted Banana with Candied Pecan is my fave).

We have normal hours this week except we will be closed to celebrate Easter Sunday.

 

Fingerprint Silver Jewelry Event 12/22, 3pm-7pm

There’s still time for a one-of-a-kind keepsake, handmade locally for Christmas! I will be taking FINGERPRINT impressions into silver clay and then firing the pendants into FINE 99.9 SILVER! They’ll be ready Wednesday, 12/23 since we fire them on-site.

Charms available in 3 different sizes and range from $45-$65. Names are hand-carved into the back of the charms, too. Several charms can be placed together on a necklace, which is a wonderful Mommy or Grandmother gift. You’ll need to place your order before the impression is taken, which will only take a couple minutes.

I will be offering the jewelry regularly at PicassoZ, so if you can’t come in now just think about Valentine’s! $45 is a tiny, bracelet-size charm and $55-65 are the classic size pendant. I do have some box and bead chain necklaces for purchase, too.    Walk-in 3-7pm or by appointment.  Message me on PicassoZ page if you have any questions about this unique process!

See you then, Kristin

PicassoZ gift cards are valid toward fingerprint jewelry!

Painting pottery in November is great family time!

Our studios are a wonderful destination for making memories with family and friends this holiday!    Whether you want to paint a handprint turkey tile for a hostess gift or a keepsake platter for the table, we’re your place!    Remember to bring in family and friends the week of Thanksgiving for some special family time.  We’re open til 9pm along with our neighbor Tea Largo Beverage Co., so you can sip and paint something special to enjoy the lovely fall season!    We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, but will be open regular hours every other day of that week.

Our ornaments and holiday shapes are on the shelves, since we know everyone likes to paint early so you have time to add your painted pieces to your decor.    Allow about a week for fired pieces.   If you want something to go home with you, try making a chunky candle or a mosaic in our Breakables mosaic studio next door!

Soccer Ball Event 6/26-7/2

Bring in a new soccer ball, and you can pick one of our soccer banks, soccer plaques or soccer bowls to paint! Why? No, its not World Cup fever, although that’s exciting. Our own Emily Osley is going on a mission trip with Highland Park Church (down the street) to Rwanda in July, and they are taking soccer balls to give out to the children in the community they are helping. I (Kristin) thought since Lakeland is a soccer town, some of you may like the opportunity to send a ball as well as have something for your soccer fan to paint this summer!

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Buy a new soccer ball (they are $10-15) & bring it to PicassoZ Art Cafe. We will trade ya a paintable ceramic soccer shape (worth $19.50-$22) for each new ball.

You can use a sharpie & your child sign their name on the ball, too! It’s super cool for the little kids in Africa to see, as well as for your child to feel how giving to others is totally fun! **We have several cases of soccer items, but If the soccer bisque is gone, we issue a rain check!

Accepting new soccer balls for soccer bisque 6/26-7/2

The first balls to roll in…thank you Suri & Selene!

Dads! Come paint with your little buddy or little princess tonight! The “me mugs” are a special rate of $12 when Dad paints his ($21).   Stop in at our neighbor, Tea Largo, for fun & unique drinks (chocolatey ones, too) or Pop Craft Pops.  ***Hey, I already checked. No Stanley Cup game & the NBA finals start at 9pm. You’re good.

A gift for teachers from PicassoZ Art Cafe

Teachers and school staff are pretty special.  We at PicassoZ (I never know where to put commas) would like to show our appreciation, too!   Certainly, our teachers deserve medals, but how about a $5 off coupon for a fun summer activity, painting pottery with family/friends.    They can make a mosaic, too, in our Breakables Mosaic Studio next door!
