Paint Your Own Pottery

The Paint Your Own Pottery Studio is Missoula's community pottery painting center! Painting pottery is a great idea for special occasions or just as a pastime. We have small figurines for kids and kitchen ware for our older painters. Friends and family alike will treasure pieces that are personalized by you.  Feel free to come in anytime we're open--no reservations necessary!  When you come through the door we'll lead you back into our studio and make sure you have the basics down to create a successful piece! 

What is Pottery Painting?

Come on down to the ZACC and find out! Until you're able to make it in, we'll give you the facts.  At the ZACC we have everything you need to successfully paint your own functional kitchen ware or fancy garden ornament. We provide the pottery, glazes, and even stencils.  You will leave the piece with us so we can clear coat it (making it food safe and smooth) and put it in the kiln to fire it.  This process takes a week or less.  This is a great way to spend a rainy afternoon or as an excuse to get the gang together for a few drinks, rent out the studio for a private party and some laughs.

We're hooked.  Can we host a party and paint pottery?

Absolutely! We'd be happy to help you entertain your party goers with painting pottery. Business might want to bring in employees to create personalized mugs for the office! We've seen fraternities and sororities celebrate here for Holiday parties. Bring in the kids for a birthday party or the family in for a reunion.

To celebrate staying open till 8 pm on Thursdays the ZACC is welcoming Ladies Pottery Painting Night in which all our women artists enjoy 20% off pottery.  You’re also welcome to visit our neighbors over at the Northside Kettlehouse and bring a beverage into our pottery painting studio.
