500 kids needed to paint tiles for PicassoZ Art Cafe's tile wall

UPDATE:   Our tile vouchers are now all claimed…all 1300 of them!!!!  I’ll have to wait til the 3/13 & 3/25 painting deadlines to see how many tiles were actually painted.  If I need more for the wall, I will post on Facebook.  I assume I will need extras but to keep it fair, I would put out another numbered voucher., unless someone has another way to keep it fair!

However, I will offer ANOTHER community participation project for kids later this year, painting pavers for our courtyard.   I will announce it to my newsletter subscribers first.   To subscribe…

Coffee Jellies are back!

SCHLURP it up through a fat straw.

Tea Largo‘s iced toddies (a smooth cold-brew iced coffee) are pretty much amazing. They have a following. So much so, I (Kristin) decided to bring back one of my personal favorites…the coffee jelly. Yes, they are coffee flavored jellies you SCHLURP up through a fat straw! It’s Florida. We drink ALOT of iced beverages. I think our boba & jellies are particularly popular here because we get bored and are looking for something to DO with our drinks rather than just mindlessly sipping.

So, here you go, Lakeland. You love our iced toddies, you love our boba teas. Now, you’ve got coffee-flavored candy in a cup. Hey, if you have a tween, like I do, and they ask you non-stop for a sip of your iced toddy…we make DECAF toddy, too! So, decaf iced toddy and blended coffee drinks now available in Buddy Brew’s Brazil Royal Select Decaf.

Tattoos for Pottery

We told you you don’t need to be an artist. You can select a special printed design and “silk screen”, and we will apply it for you on your painted ceramic surface with a unique concoction we mix up.   So, if you just want to paint a background light blue, then put a ship tattoo on it, boom…you’re an artist.

Just like a tattoo…for your pottery.  Sea theme, woodland theme, basic swirls, etc. And vintage theme coming in later this month.

Groups & parties have a special suite!

Our new studio space is a dedicated studio for larger groups and parties!    It can comfortably seat 30 people!    This means a nice relaxing space for family and guests to enjoy.

At our “old” Lakeside Village studio, we hardly had room for a small party and a couple parents.   Its hard to turn away parents who want to stand and watch, but we were squished.   Now, at our new Cleveland Heights studio, you’ve got some room to celebrate.   There is a table for gifts and cake, a little fridge, a helium tank, plenty of table space, popular pottery to paint, decorative supplies, its own paint bar AND bathroom, and A TON of CHARM!

Reserve our Art Loft today at our online system, for 8-30 painters.   You’ll also have a dedicated staff member that specializes in facilitating your gathering and helping your guests have a memorable time!   The most creative parties in Lakeland are now at PicassoZ Party Loft.
