Q&A with Jennifer Stratton, Owner

As the old adage says, "Stuff happens." What training do you and your staff have to stay ahead of the unexpected?

Owner Jennifer Stratton is not content to sit idle. Aside from her creative pursuits, she is also currently seeking a degree in early childhood development. Jennifer has taught art classes based on literature, story-writing workshops, card making and personal publishing.

What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?

We are an indoor play and art studio for families. We offer art classes for all ages?even grownups. Whether you choose to build, imagine, experience, create, or perform, we will cater to your creative needs and families will easily move through our playscapes.

What?s your favorite part of your job?

At the play studio, we get to experience the occurrence of actual learning: real, organic learning through play, not just curriculum in books. Unscheduled play encourages literacy skills, creativity, and problem solving, and as a business owner I love hearing kids laugh, learn, and play.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

No one is too old to learn through play.

Ever since The Alaska Club opened its first location in 1986, they've been striving to serve their members by adding amenities, classes, and opening new locations. Though each location?s offerings vary, they supplement their well-stocked fleets of cardio machines and strength equipment with cycling studios, climbing walls, basketball courts, swimming pools, and play centers for the kids. The club also offers spa services including hydromassage beds, tanning, and saunas.

Group fitness classes include yoga, step aerobics, and Pilates, and personal trainers stand at the ready to help clients focus on fitness goals. The clubs also offer swim lessons and summer camps for kids, setting in stone their commitment to making The Alaska Club a place for the whole family, not the half-formed family, which needs at least seven more years to gestate in the laboratory incubator.

Swim Like A Fish teaches kids to be comfortable and safe in the water. Founder Jeannette Menchinsky has made it a mission to prevent drownings ever since she was personally affected by one. Now, she organizes classes that teach children how to become expert swimmers with a patient, encouraging method. Taking place in a 4-feet-deep heated pool, private lessons can be scheduled between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. to accommodate most families' busy lives. In addition to kids' lessons, the school hosts classes that train adults who are beginners or triathletes and boaters who want to improve their skills.

Aiming to "liberate the inner artist" in all of us, sisters Catherine Warden-Daniels and Victoria Bunch founded Arctic Crown Canvas, where the oft-intimidating act of painting a canvas is made wholly accessible. The formula is simple: all visitors have to bring is themselves?and snacks, if they so desire it. From there, Arctic Crown supplies everything, from the paint and brushes to the easy-to-follow instructions and inspirational impersonations of Van Gogh praising everyone's work. The result is a finished product, varying in subject matter, which each participant will be able to take home at the close of the class.
