Picasso's Corner's imaginative artists offer step-by-step instruction to guide students of all skill levels as they craft 16"x20" paintings. Classes, running either two hours Tuesday-Wednesday or three hours Thursday-Saturday, are scheduled at 7 p.m. and include all necessary materials such as acrylic paint, brushes, high-powered paintball guns, easels, aprons, and canvases. Patrons may use provided bottle openers and cups during class to enjoy self-supplied beer, wine, and snacks. The Funky Paintbrush's three-hour open-studio sessions offer a more independent painting session devoid of step-by-step instruction and performance-enhancing hugs.
Beneath vividly colored rafters, a climbable children's playground blooms with pirate ships, a maze of bridges, and inflatable bounce rooms to inspire kinetic play and stoke little ones' imaginative fires. DACKids' safety crew keeps a responsible eye on the kiddie revelry, monitoring the Pirates Cove play park dressed in full, seaworthy costume. Under their responsible gaze, kids shuffle across the sandy floor of the Giant Octopus's lair or maneuver over rope ladders, fire foam-ball cannons, and waggle flags perched atop wooden forts.
The DACK Pirate Cove accommodates birthday celebrations with packages that allow wee ones to explore and burn off steam for 90-minutes before retiring to a private room, where partygoers revel in food and festivities while parents connect to the in-house WiFi to research how pirates doled out justice for sneaking second helpings of cake.
After a career that included breaking both knees in the Army and seeing three back-to-back hurricanes while working for a Central Florida sheriff's office, David W. Turner Sr. felt it was time to pursue his dream of becoming a professional bass fisherman. Today, he follows the FLW and B.A.S.S. tournament trails, competing under sponsorships from major brands such as Dobyns Rods and Lew's. To stay sharp when not on the circuit, Turner lends his bass-angling expertise through services that range from customized fishing lessons to five-hour guided trips on waters such as Lake Allatoona, Lake Lanier, and Lake Sinclair. He welcomes clients aboard his 21-foot Triton boat, outfitted with Hummingbird side-imaging depth finders that create a topographical image of the lake bottom. In addition to lessons and guided trips, Turner gives back through Operation: A Day on the Lake, a program through which tournament anglers take a veteran out for a day of fishing.
At PLaY! Music and Art, children try their had at different artistic ventures in an intimate and supportive environment. Students test their tiny fingers on the fretboard of a violin or viola or shred sounds on a flute, clarinet, or saxophone during private music lessons. Children also grip brushes and pencils in one of several art classes exploring basic drawing, painting, basic Photoshop editing, and Monopoly-money counterfeiting. PLaY! Music and Art hosts birthday parties that blend pizza with artistic endeavors and summer camps in music-video creation or Native American art. The studio also equips parents with free WiFi.
