Walls of Clay
This studio in McKinney’s historic downtown offers a variety of unpainted ceramic bisque pieces, from vases to plates and cups to figurines, that you select then make it your own by painting, stenciling, sponging or stamping your design. They’ll hand-glaze it for you, then fire it in-house. Walls of Clay also offers private events for parties or corporate functions.
Wild Brush Studio
Schedule an individual spot or book a party with Wild Brush Studio located on McKinney’s downtown square where you can work with the three artist / owners to create your own take-home painting. They’ll even bring the art to your own home if you want to book an at-home painting party. Wild Brush Studio offers a unique date night – dinner at one of McKinney’s special downtown eateries, painting at the studio, then enjoying dessert or an after-painting drink on the square.
