Comfortable atmosphere with great service
I love this place. They keep the birthdays and the camps separate, in their upstairs room, so I don't feel too crowded when I'm painting. They have a good selection of pottery and a reasonable sitting fee (unlike some, they don't charge by the hour). They let me bring my laptop, have free net, and allow food and drink, so when I'm doing a serious project and am there all day, I'm comfortable. The staff is friendly- if you want to have a great painting experience, go in on a weekday; it's quiet, and the staff will happily answer any questions or give you design advice. Location is good, too- downtown Los Altos is way more laid-back than Palo Alto or Mountain View, and there's good lunch places nearby.
