Children love to color, paint, sculpt and draw, even if they’re not accomplished artists, and adults can take a cue from those kids at Color Me Mine in Silver Spring. Whether you come solo or rent the place out for a private party, you work at your own pace and in your own way, supported by the staff members who can help you manage the process, suggest techniques for decoration, or just leave you to your own devices.
Here’s how it works: after you arrive and check in, select a pottery piece that strikes your fancy. Then choose the colors and techniques that you’d like to use to decorate your piece–it could be brushes, stencils, sponges, or stamps. Once you’re done (usually after a couple of hours), you pay for your pottery and the studio fee ($10 standard, less on discount days), and get a pickup date for your piece to be fired and ready.
