Welcome to Art by U!
Omro’s Creation Station
A Paint Your Own Pottery Shop
Art by U is a “Paint Your Own Pottery Shop”. Our art studio provides a large assortment of bisqueware (clay that has been molded into an object and fired in a kiln one time) ready for you to glaze. We carry a rainbow of glaze colors that are toxic-free and food safe when fired. Once you glaze/paint/decorate your bisqueware, it will be fired in a kiln, producing a shiny sealed pottery piece, ready for your enjoyment. Art by U hosts parties and events in the studio, and Art by U will also bring the party to U! See Party Packages for details.
Summer Hours (June-September)
Art by U provides party packages for adults and children. We serve adult beverages, soda, water, and snacks, and we welcome party goers to bring their own food for parties if desired.
We are located in Omro Wisconsin, a small town in East Central Wisconsin. The shop at 117 W. Main Street is part of Omro’s Historic District, building #8. We have a handicap accessibility ramp located in the rear of the building. Ample public parking available.

I.O.O.F Building, 1894-1912
The right-hand portion of this Italianate style-influenced building was built for the members of the Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.) fraternal order in 1894 at a cost of $3,500. The two stores provided income for the Order and the second story was its meeting hall. The Order continued to gather in this hall until the 1990s, when much of its memorabilia was given to the Omro Area Historical Museum (18), where it is now on display.The left-hand portion of the building was built in 1912, and it was purposefully designed to match the original portion, which accounts for its, by then, quite old-fashioned design. The addition’s first story was used as a bakery until recently while the other stores have had many tenants. The buildings are located within the Omro Downtown Historic District.
