Have been here multiple times, and the experience is amazing every time. Staff is welcoming and the ambiance is great. Takes around a week to process and fire pieces.

Such a cute place to go with family and friends or even a cute little solo date! 😍
I loved making my mug and I took my time painting. πŸ˜… The employees were very nice and answered any questions I had. 😁😊

I took my grandson and we had a blast. The average price for items to paint are $30 but includes all supplies needed and the firing of your item so not bad. We loved it!

WELCOME TO SAN DIEGO'SThe Hot Spot-Liberty Station

We believe in the joyful power of art and creating to ignite sparks of imagination within everyone. We offer a range of projects so there is something for everyone. Paint pottery or canvas, create colorful chunky scented candles, dabble in the art of mosaics, make a succulent garden and get slimy with slime!

Adults and kids have fun, relax, socialize, listen to great music and create their own masterpieces. Whether it’s a bachelorette party, birthday, first date, or a family date, we guarantee everyone will leave with a smile. This is a happy place for all, and we enjoy seeing your smiles!

How it works, it's simple:
1.) Choose your project, from pottery painting to candle making to mosaics and more...
2.) Create! We supply everything needed to complete each project. All projects are priced as marked. Average is approx. $30 and includes everything.
3.) Enjoy your creation! Keep it for yourself or give it as a unique, handmade gift.

All projects go home the same day except pottery which takes a few days. (Pottery is food, dishwasher, microwave safe after firing.) Drop in or reserve. No age limit or experience necessary.
