Mamas, I have littles. They like to be busy ALL THE TIME! We have plenty of toys, but sometimes that gets old also. Well I was so pleasantly surprised to fine this AWESOME, FUN, FAMILY FRIENDLY experience that opened in June…Lola’s Art Experience! They are located across from Bop’s in Mandeville. The first time we visited, I took my older son (he’s 8) because I wasn’t sure what to expect. We each chose a piece of ceramic to paint. Next, we picked out colors and then we got to work. We only had about an hour to paint (which for most kids is PLENTY…but my kid wanted MORE time, so we wrapped it up and brought it back a few days later to continue working…which did NOT cost extra!)
After we painted our projects and were happy with how it looked, we left the pieces there to be fired in the kiln. About a week later we got a call that our pieces were ready and I went to pick them up!
They were AMAZING!! They turned out so great! My little guy was so happy and asked when we could go back….so…
After the Eclipse, that I let my children watch, we returned to Lola’s Art Experience. I thought it would be fun to memorialize the event that we just saw and I let EACH of my children pick a tile to paint. We each painted the Eclipse in our own way and again we left our pieces behind to be fired. When I returned to pick up the pieces, again I was SO pleased with the results. My kids were also SO excited to have their very own creations completed!
