Painting is SO much fun, especially when you get to express yourself and just paint whatever you like! At All Fired Up Paintable Ceramics, they are ALL about art and FUN!
The great thing about All Fired Up Paintable Ceramics, is that you don't actually need to make the ceramics pieces yourself, so it's great for those younger kids who are just getting into art.
All you do, is just arrive, and pick one of the unfinished ceramic pieces on the shelf. There are actually hundreds to choose from! They range from bowls, cups, cars, banks and plates.
Then, you just pick your colors (and kids, what we love about art is that there is no right or wrong...you just pick ANYTHING you want, no matter what the combination! Then, you find your brush. It could also be a stencil, or a sponge, or any other technique you think it pretty cool.
Once you're ready to paint, just take your time, and enjoy making your masterpiece. The staff on hand have lots of techniques and ideas to help you out, and you can just take as long as you like.
(If you don't finish, you can always head back to finish your piece off, so don't rush!)
Once you've finished you just hand it over to the staff, who will glaze it, fire it, and then have it ready for you in a week to use or display. How much fun does that sound!? So great for kids too.
Think All Fired Up Paintable Ceramics is all about pottery? Nope! They also can show you how to make tiles, plates and bowls out of fused glass. Sounds pretty creative! For kids over 7 years they can really learn something unique.
Art fun all around in Ontario with this great family friendly pottery painting experience. Go get those fingers messy kids!

Doing our bit
They use non-toxic, food safe and lead free paints and glaze, so you can safely use anything you make if it is a bowl or a plate, or similar.

Took the kids during the Christmas break. We had a great time! I was concerned that my four-year-old wouldn't have the patience to do all the painting and waiting for his piece to dry, but he was so intrigued by how it would turn out in the end that it kept his attention for the whole afternoon. The staff was great and very friendly and helpful...also very patient with the kids. We will definitely be making a trip back there the next time we're in the mood to paint!
