Spotswood Art Studio Adds a Spin to Art
Pottery is becoming the latest art trend that everyone is taking part in. All over New Jersey art studios are offering painting lessons, pottery painting, wine and paint nights. But, one place is doing things a little bit differently. Located on Main Street in Spotswood, N.J., The Clay Pot puts their own spin on art.
The Clay Pot offers a variety of classes, activities, and workshops that are fun for the whole family, including painting pottery, sculpting pottery, wheel spinning lessons. The studio is open Monday through Friday 10a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and is closed on Sundays. The studio is quiet during the morning hours on weekdays and is busier with customers during the afternoon hours on Saturdays and the evening hours on Fridays.
Inside the studio, the room is filled with different stations including a wheel spinning station, a clay building station, and painting station. There is a ton of inspiration on display throughout the room from painted works, to pictures, and pattern and designs on the wall. Employees at The Clay Pot are very knowledgeable about art and the pieces at the studio. Many of the employees create the pieces on display to be painted. They each have a background in art and are very knowledgeable and helpful to the customers who come in for painting and lessons.
Prices vary, but are reasonable for the average person. If you want to paint pottery you can select from over a hundred pieces to paint. You can select a variety of cups, bowls, plates, character figures, holiday decorations, and sculptures. Prices begin at $10, and increase regarding the size of the piece.
The Clay Pot offers wheeling spinning lessons which begin at $30 an hour. That lesson includes one hour of spinning and time to paint your creation. The wheel spinning lesson is great for those who are interested in building their own bowl, cup, vase, or pencil holder. A new workshop is now being offered at The Clay Pot; Raku Workshop.
