Pottery is hands-on art at its most basic, most primitive and also most practical. From lumpy ash trays and misshapen coffee mugs to magnificent works of true art, pottery has been and still is a big part of the human story. Connecticut has no shortage of potters or places for those seeking to learn or hone that ancient craft can go to study, or just have fun.
Inside every kid lives an artist, and fortunately in Connecticut, there are many centers, workshops, galleries and schools that are eager to help bring that creative soul to light.
Kids love to play with paint, and while paper and cardboard only lasts so long, pottery can last forever. In Connecticut, there are many places where children of all ages can connect with this ancient art form by painting pots.
