Expressions is an awesome place because it's great to bring the kids, but it's also fun to go without the kids. You just pick out a piece that you would like to paint and start painting. You leave it there so it can go into the kiln, and then you pick it up again in about five days. They have vases, plates, bowls, and all kinds of other things. The pottery you make is a cool homemade present for someone too.
