The fun-loving teachers at Uptown Art: West Palm Beach believe they can teach anyone to paint work they'll be proud of. Child brush wielders get inspiration from helpful instructors who mentor them in their strokes, and adult classes find similar guidance from both the pro painters and their own BYOB beverages. The airy downtown studio attracts budding painters to its varied schedule of evening painting classes and daytime children's classes that span up to three festive hours of guided artmaking. Students return home with their masterpieces at their sides, each based on a class topic such as a homage to a beloved pet, a poignant still-life of potted flowers, or a self-portrait that looks suspiciously like Audrey Hepburn.
Performance Films Window Tinting uses quality products to tincture the glass of cars and homes, dramatically improving life on the other side. By making windows opaque from the outside, technicians block out UV rays that overheat motorists and fade the colors of delicate interiors. When applied to home windows, tinting can dramatically reduce energy costs and help maintain consistent temperatures. The techs also enhance the cool factor from inside the car, accessorizing auto interiors with GPS systems, audio and visual components, and alarms.

Bradford Rowley's manually finished portraiture evokes the classic regality of a time when the paintbrush was mightier than the Polaroid. Each personally appointed opus begins life as a photograph in the artist's controlled studio environment. Individual subjects can regale the camera eye with defining aspects of their personality or hobbies, augmenting poses with props such as a violin, a horse-riding crop, or a high-school-mascot costume. After that, clients select a single shot to serve as the base of the future masterpiece. Up to eight layers of paint ensconce this initial image in the trappings of old Europe during the ensuing three-month artistic process. Bradford's team of classical crafters employs digital processes only when absolutely necessary, discreetly expunging unsightly bits of lint or the ghost of Warren G. Harding.
