The Mud Room Offers Field Trips for Kids

Get creative at The Mud Room, or we can bring our studio to you! Kids, parents and teachers love these artsy and practical projects. Mud Room field trips are perfect for daycares, schools, scouts, churches and more.


The Mud Room has offered pottery painting (and more!) for over 20 years to local schools, daycares, churches, scout troops and other community organizations. If you’re looking for a unique experience or a fun way to create handmade gifts and keepsakes, check out what our popular studio has to offer.

Both on-site and off-site field trip opportunities provide a creative activity for kids and quality keepsakes that parents will love. Field trip events at The Mud Room are:

  • AFFORDABLE! We provide generous discounts for large group events. Get the best pricing with our classic field trip packages for groups of 20+, or check out our event packages for scouts and other groups of 6+. Projects can be customized, and don’t forget to ask us about fundraising opportunities, too.
  • CONVENIENT! We’re now centrally located at Knapp’s Corner in Grand Rapids, easily accessible from any direction. Our studio can hold 20-50 students. Have a larger group? Can’t travel? That’s ok – we can bring the studio to you. Off-site locations allow us to accommodate groups of 20 to several hundred. We’ll bring the pottery, color, brushes and our staff to lead your group in creating a fun project. Need more flexibility? Paint pottery on your own schedule with our Do-It-Yourself Package – a perfect solution if you need to spread your activity out over a few days. Just pick up your pottery, supplies and instructions and bring everything back to be fired when you’re done.

  • UNIQUE & EDUCATIONAL! Pottery Painting is our most popular activity for kids. Choose from tiles, mugs, bowls, ornaments, animals and more. Looking for something more unique? We also offer glass fusing, canvas painting, potter’s wheel classes and rustic wood signs, too. Many project photos can be found on our website and we have physical samples for you in the studio. We can tailor projects to fit your theme, earn your badge or add artistic curriculum reinforcement to your lesson plans.
  • MEMORABLE! Whether you’re celebrating the start or end of the school year, making ornaments for the holidays, creating gifts for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, painting plates and chalices for a First Communion, earning a scout badge, creating a legacy tile wall or mural, or just looking for a fun activity over school break, we can help! We’re also happy to add on individual personalization by painting each child’s name and the year on his or her creations, using bold and whimsical lettering.
  • TRUSTED! The Mud Room has been serving the West Michigan community for over 20 years! Many schools, churches and other groups invite us back year after year. Our goal is to make it fun and easy for you, and offer quality products for your group! References are available upon request. All products are water-based for easy cleanup and non-toxic to keep your kids safe.


Field Trips with The Mud Room can be at our studio or brought to you, so you can skip the school buses and extra chaperones. The studio makes it easy for your staff and fun for kids, who can create their very own quality art – a fun and functional memory or gift.
