A creative night out, with no art experience needed! This is one of our favorite holidays, because we love hosting memories! This is our 15th year! Paint pottery, make mosaics, make a chunky candle, or just visit our jewelry bar and Tea Largo.
Sign and date your pieces, and always remember Valentine’s Day, 2018. All welcome. No reservations, walk-ins only. Our 2nd floor party loft seats 30, and it will be available as well for overflow.
PicassoZ will be open at 10am -9:30pm on Wednesday, Feb 14th. We heart our customers! Allow a week for pottery to be kiln-fired, but chunky candles and mosaics goes home with you same day.
Tea Largo is open 7am-9:30pm Feb 14th! Tea Largo is our cafe inside our building, and they have a seasonal menu of tea lattes, boba teas, cold brew drinks that are memorable as well! The HOT pink dragonfruit bowl with strawberries, coconut and a pink spoon is surely Instagram-worthy on this holiday.
Looking to PAINT something FOR your Valentine? Our pottery painting deadline is Friday, Feb 9th, 9:30pm!
Mosaic some art this week! Maybe not necessarily this large kitchen table like Manager Shelly did, but mosaic something this Break! Its fun, it can be fast, and it goes home with you! Making mosaics is also beginner-friendly! This means that it’s easy to learn the basics for a great mosaic in about 5 minutes, and all mosaics look fantastic once they are grouted!
Select your surface in our studio. They start at $21, and all surfaces include a take home grout kit. Keep in mind we do have a grouting service available if you can leave your surface with us for a week or so.
Select your “tesserae”. That is the fancy word for pieces. Grab what you need from our assortment of glass, ceramic pieces, wood pieces, in various shapes, colors, textures, etc.
Arrange on your surface.
Start gluing them down.
Wait 24 hours to grout.
Yep, that’s it. No firing, no cutting, no wondering how its going to turn out… What you see is what you get. This is a great activity for kids 8 and up.
We are so excited for our 16th holiday season of pottery painting in Lakeland! That’s alot of handprints & ornaments!
We will be busy in all 4 of our creative suites this Thanksgiving week! Visit our one-of-a-kind spaces at PicassoZ Art Cafe, The Trinket Bar & Tea Largo Beverage Co. Remember, our gift cards are valid at all of them!

Our Christmas deadline for firing pottery has now been extended to Tuesday, 12/21, because we are firing our kilns daily and can accept another day’s pieces with confidence!

Our favorite instructor (for our own kids, too!) is Melanie Carroll. She has been working out of our South Lakeland studio for over a year now, and everyone loves her…parents…kids… and me, owner Kristin. My 12 year old daughter who didnt like art because she claimed she “wasn’t good at it”, thoroughly loves Melanie’s classes! Melanie teaches in 1 hour blocks, First Graders up to High School.
Professional Soap Maker Sharon Johnson, YouTube’s Hot Process Queen, will be teaching all the basics of Fluid Hot Process Soap Making! She also owns her own soap making and natural skin care business called Rose of Sharon Essential Skin Care, and also creator of the SJHP/SBHP, Sharon Johnson Hot Process/Stick Blend Hot Process Method. This 3-hour class is completely hands-on.
Once you complete the class you will be able to make 10-Minute Fluid Hot Process soap on your own using the SJHP/SBHP method. This class is perfect for those who want to learn to make soap at home as a hobby. The classes are small so you will get personalized attention while getting hands on experience. Each student will make and take home a loaf of “ready-to-use” soap (4-5 bars) made in class. Each student gets to choose the color and scent of your loaf of soap.
Introductory Course Cost: $99 includes SJHP/SBHP Hot Process Soap-making eBook Tutorial and Recipes (retail value $69), which you may download immediately, materials fee, safety gear, and loaf of soap to take home (retail value $35).

There’s still time to paint a gift for Mom, as our deadline for firing pottery is Tuesday, 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.
If you’ve visited over the last month and wondered what’s going on inside our mosaic studio, we have a surprise. Our artist-in-residence Kim is giving our mosaic studio a facelift and making room for a hot boho jewelry trend of jewelry mixology! This will be a walk-in, mix your own collage of charms, pendants, trinkets and baubles on vintage-look chains or hand-dyed ribbons. Breakables Mosaic Studio will still be inside what will soon be called “The Trinket Bar”…(and we will FINALLY have a sign over our 4th space in our 4300 sq ft building!) Our pottery pick up area will be moved to this side of our building, too. We’re excited to launch all these new changes for Mother’s Day weekend!
So, our Junk Market Jewelry became so popular over the last couple years, we decided to expand it. It’s such a great walk-in gift idea because it can be totally personalized and assembled in minutes or take as much time as you want treasure-hunting for just the right charms for your necklace, bracelet, key chain or even book mark. Gift boxes and tiny little bags are complimentary when you purchase a chain or ribbon.
Remember, our Tea Largo and PicassoZ gift cards all work in all of our spaces, even for our Party Loft for a group outing!
Yes, our Trinket Bar will be open the same hours as PicassoZ as of Monday, 4/18.
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.
This Sunday, all three of our stores will be open 10am-9pm to accommodate our sweet guests.
For info about this day, visit our Valentine’s event page on Facebook. We also are hosting an UNvalentine’s day event that day in the mosaic studio area of our 4200 square feet building! No art experience needed.

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!
Our studio is loaded with paintable holiday items and popular gift-giving shapes, like mugs, banks, cookie jars, platters, and even Hello Kitty boxes, to name a few!

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!
Registration is open for our Fall Art Projects at PicassoZ Art Cafe. Picassoz has an amazing upstairs loft we will be using to be creative in. I can’t wait! I heart Mondays & Tuesdays! Please email me for information – Melanie Carroll firstname.lastname@example.org
PicassoZ owner Kristin says:
“We are absolutely thrilled to host Melanie Carroll’s art classes! My daughter (who is NOT a confident artist!) and a friend (who is!) attended her classes at Hobby Lobby this spring and they both just loved her. Well, now with our all our creative space here on Cleveland Heights, I was able to offer up our inspiring Art Loft to host some special art activities for kids! I’m so glad to have her teach our kids! Melanie is a real gem!
Her classes are an hour long and different age groups are at different times throughout Mondays & Tuesdays as great homeschool and after school activities for kids. Here is her Facebook page to see more about her and some of her student’s work. In the meantime, plan to drop off your kids and send your teens over to be with us!
Looking for something creative to do you can take home with you? Our walk-in mosaic studio, Breakables, is adjacent to Tea Largo, with cafe style seating so you can “break away”, relax, and create.
When we moved to our Cleveland Heights studio in December, one of the most exciting things we did was expand our mosaic studio! For almost a decade, our mosaics were in “bits and pieces” on a wall in a corner of our studio. It was surprising how popular they were for how little space they had. Being a self-taught mosaic artist, the mosaic side of our building is my favorite! It’s got loads of glass, ceramic, sea shells, and even drift wood pieces to work into your project.
Our shapes are visible and nicely displayed on the walls, and we even added ceramic words, letters and specialty baubles that are available at a minimal charge that can really make your piece pop. Mosaics go home with you, so they are a wonderful activity if you drive in to spend the day with us in our silly building of creativity.
ChuNky CaNdLes belonged in our Breakables Studio too, since many of the candle wax options we have to build your candle with are indeed breakable. We make slabs of thin colored candle wax that breaks apart, and then looks like a beach glass. Of course, candle chunks are still on hand, for building a pillar mold candle or a glass jar candle, with your choice of fragrance!
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
Our popular Tea Largo Beverage Company shop is full of artsy fun, as well as fabulous hand-crafted drinks. Serving boba teas, smoothies, tea lattes, coffees, refreshing iced teas, as well as the decadent Frozen Hot Chocolate, Tea Largo is a destination for exotic drinks (healthy and un).
Bubble teas are our most popular category–the sweet, rich, exotic flavors like Honeydew, Taro, Thai, Mango Chai, Coconut, Lychee, Watermelon, Almond, and more… They include boba, which are chewy, sweet tapioca pearls that you schlurp through a fat straw.
Our new tea lattes (hot, iced or frozen) are made from premium loose leaf teas into a concentrate that is lightly sweetened. We can use your preferred type of milk to flavors like
Chocolate Ginger Bourbon Black Tea Latte
Caramel Sea Salt Molasses Rooibos Latte
Earl Grey Black Tea Latte (the London Fog)
Roasted Cocoa Barley Coffee Black Tea Latte
Carrot Cake Rooibos Tea Latte
Toasted Coconut Chocolate Black Tea Latte
Traditional coffee your thing? We carry Buddy Brew craft-roasted coffee from Tampa, and make cold brew iced coffee, hot french press, premium espresso drinks, and retail the beans as well.
Any dads who paint or mosaic with us this Saturday or Sunday receive a well-deserved complimentary Tea Largo Beverage Co. drink. PicassoZ and Breakables Mosaic Studio by PicassoZ are the coolest places for fun family time!
**Try mosaics, Dad! You get to use TOOLS and protective eye wear, and they go home with you same day!
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.
We’re open for some great family time today. Besides, it’s a great day to paint something for Dad. PicassoZ Art Cafe and Tea Largo hours on Monday, May 25th are 10am-9pm and Breakables Mosaic Studio is 10-5pm.
Funky chunky candles go home with you, and so do mosaics! If you want to make a fused glass pendant, it can be easily mailed to you when its fired. Pottery painting takes about a week, and we can ship to you if needed.
This Friday-Sunday. There is nothing moms love nothing more than to sit down with family and spend time together. The fact that you’re all making memories as well as making pottery, well…that seals the deal. And, all painting or mosaic’ing moms get a FREE Beverage from Tea Largo!
Doing art together PicassoZ Mother’s Day Weekend is the perfect day out with Mom and Grandma. Plenty of seating for painters or mosaic’ing in Breakables Mosaic Studio by PicassoZ, too. Mosaics & chunky candles, in our mosaic studio, go home with you-no firing!
Friday, May 8th 10am-10:30pm
Saturday, May 9th 10am-10:30pm
Sunday, May 10th 10am-7pm (special event hours)
The first 100 moms, starting on Friday, get a magnetic or wearable ceramic flower to keep (when they paint or mosaic).
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!
Feel free to print these for any of the teachers and staff of your school.
Our voucher link will be printable through Monday, May 11th. They are valid for teachers/school staff to paint or mosaic from 5/14/15 through 8/14/15. We’d love to have you on our Teacher Newsletter list, Sign up here.
These are not numbered, and can be circulated freely but only downloaded through Monday night.
We hope to see all of you this summer! Gosh we hope to see all of you this Mother’s Day weekend for our Annual Event! (just keep in mind the vouchers are valid beginning 5/14 as we already have special goodies for moms this weekend!)
Use a PicassoZ OR Tea Largo gift card in either PicassoZ, Tea Largo, Breakables Mosaic Studio! They are all interchangable! For cards loaded with $20 or more, we add a cute little fired or wired bit of art to the gift card. We can also mail Mom a gift card for you! We also carry Natural Lift gifts…including cards and gift bags!
Have you had one of our acai bowls yet? They have a rock star following! For Earth Day, April 22nd, we have a fun little promotion for you if you bring your own bowl in. Check out our event on Facebook, and invite a friend, or even your team.
It’s not difficult coming up with creative ideas for Mother’s Day gifts any more. We have Pinterest. This platter my sister and I made for our mom back in 2010 was an original, though. In fact, I don’t remember if I’ve posted it on Pinterest yet…
Yes, we at PicassoZ love a good play on words. So, we’re playing up the “break” and loaded up promotions in our Breakables Mosaic Studio. If you haven’t visited yet, its really grown in popularity as a nice, relaxing environment to create in. It has a different vibe than PicassoZ, and is a little more sophisticated, but not much, LOL. It’s still walk-in, and still DIY. But with mosaics, you can take your creation home with you! Our hours are a little different in Breakables, 10-6 and this Spring Break week, we’re open
Easter Sunday all our shops are closed.
See our event calendar for an assortment of fun mosaic specials, and even some that celebrate the fact that it still is Easter Week!
Tea Largo‘s iced toddies (a smooth cold-brew iced coffee) are pretty much amazing. They have a following. So much so, I (Kristin) decided to bring back one of my personal favorites…the coffee jelly. Yes, they are coffee flavored jellies you SCHLURP up through a fat straw! It’s Florida. We drink ALOT of iced beverages. I think our boba & jellies are particularly popular here because we get bored and are looking for something to DO with our drinks rather than just mindlessly sipping.
So, here you go, Lakeland. You love our iced toddies, you love our boba teas. Now, you’ve got coffee-flavored candy in a cup. Hey, if you have a tween, like I do, and they ask you non-stop for a sip of your iced toddy…we make DECAF toddy, too! So, decaf iced toddy and blended coffee drinks now available in Buddy Brew’s Brazil Royal Select Decaf.
