If you are looking for a place to connect with your inner artist, there are plenty of options in the Myrtle Beach area. What is more memorable than making a souvenir that you created all your own? Whether you need a rainy-day activity or a break from the beach, here are five places you can get creative on the Grand Strand.

Harry the Potter

4007-B Bell Terre Boulevard

Myrtle Beach

Harry the Potter is a fun place to spend quality time with family and friends, and you will leave with a unique, personalized gift or souvenir. Painters of all ages and experience are welcome to walk- in, with no appointment necessary. Paint piggy banks, figurines, trinket boxes, mugs, vases, plates and trays, household items, and more. Harry the Potter has over 1,000 consistently changing items to choose from! If you decide to paint a breakable you’re afraid to travel with, they will ship your item back home to you. While there, visit with Lady the shop dog, whose job is to meet and greet customers (and keep little ones entertained while parents paint).

I Was Fired in SC

4021 Highway 17 South

North Myrtle Beach

I Was Fired in SC is a family-friendly, family-owned pottery studio that offers a large selection of painting items to choose from. Stop in and choose from a variety of colors and supplies, while working on your specialized souvenir. Need an extra hand? This studio also offers trained artists available to assist you in your creation. Thinking about making a keepsake hand, foot, or paw print? The staff has helpful advice to help you get started. Along with pottery, they also offer directions in Zentangle, a fascinating new way of drawing and pottery painting (think of the amazing designs you see in adult coloring books).
