I needed to make some unique holiday gifts and decided to visit my favorite pottery painting place, The Artist in You!  Of course, I found exactly what I wanted and was thrilled with the wonderful experience I had there! The Artist in You is a casual, family-friendly contemporary art studio in Westport Village.  Their staff provides children with a safe, fun-filled camp experience.  With 300-400 pieces of pottery to choose from, there is something for everyone!  Prices range from $5 - $75 so you can always find something within your budget as well!


Painting pottery is fun, simple and relaxing.  It is nice to just sit and concentrate on making a neat piece of art!  It is also a great activity for kids!  I took my 6 year old son with me and he chose a cool Halloween monster bowl to paint!  I love that it is a functional piece that can hold candy, while also being a decorative piece for the Halloween season.  The Artist in You offers mugs, plates, platters, goblets, tiles, and much more.  They have all of the materials that you need there.  You can use paintbrushes, stamps, stencils, transfer materials and they have a very attentive staff that can assist you in creating that one of a kind keepsake. 


I wanted to do some fun pieces for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday!  It is often times an over-looked holiday and I wanted to give a little something to the grandmothers in our family to THANK them for always being so great to our kids!  The staff helped me choose colors that would look good together and also helped me get the children’s handprints on the plates I chose.  Once you spend time painting your piece, you sign the bottom of it, leave it with them and they fire it.  When you return about a week later, you have a beautiful hand-made gift that the recipient will enjoy so very much!


I also featured them on my getting ready for Autumn tv segment on WHAS11 here:

The Artist in you also offers glass fusion which is a process of using a kiln to join together pieces of glass. If you apply heat to glass, it will soften. If you continue to apply heat, the glass will become more fluid and flow together. Two or more pieces of glass will stick (or "fuse") to each other. When the right kind of glass is heated and then cooled properly, the resulting fused glass piece will be solid and unbroken.


If you are looking for a unique party idea, look no further.  The Artist in You offers Birthday parties, Group parties, Glass parties, corporate outings and even Girl Scout Troop gatherings!  From Fundraising to Bridal events, classes to camps, they truly have so much to offer!  Check out the Events calendar on their website to read about various theme nights that offer discounts as well!  


The Artist in You is located in Louisville, KY at The Westport Village Shopping Center. The studio was originally founded by Kim Skillen in 2001 and is currently owned and operated by Sharon Weis. Sharon resides in Louisville with her husband, Joe Weis, Jr., and their two sons, Joseph and Jacob.  The Artist in You is focused on making the most artistic, enjoyable experience for each and every guest. The quality time you spend with family, friends or by yourself is as important as the personal piece of art you created. Customer service remains a priority and we will help enhance your creative talent to enable you to bring out the artist in you!

The studio is open 7 days a week and is located at 1321 Herr Lane, Suite 187, Louisville, KY 40222 (across from Wild Eggs).  The last seating & pick-up time is one hour before close.  Hours are Mon-Sat: 10am - 9pm, Sunday: 12pm - 6pm.  For more information visit their website at: or on Facebook at
