Mrs. Kelleen Longfellow, a piano instructor with a master's degree in education, teaches students of all ages to tickle the ivories with the ascending-chord progressions commonly found in churches and gospel music. She constantly practices this approach, since she also serves as administrative pastor for the First Baptist Church of Hallowell. Students can learn to play jazz piano or develop skills in classical music in order to justify wearing a powdered wig to bed.

5,000 square feet of indoor rock walls outfitted for top-rope belaying and bouldering entertain guests of all experience levels at Maine Rock Gym, which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2014.

A separate climbing area for kids will also be tucked away in the facility, along with rooms to host birthday parties for young revelers.

Artist Adria Moynihan brings her creative visions to life as she lavishes canvases with bright daubs of paint and helps students realize their artistic potential during lessons that empower with fun and constructive artistic exploration. As her pupils take brushes or charcoal in hand, Adria helps them unlearn old, constrictive rules or inspires them to add personal, fanciful twists to realistic depictions, such as nestling a grenade among the apples in a fruit bowl. Students can steer their learning toward shading landscapes with pastels or fluttering acrylics and oils over canvases as they get acquainted with color theory, paint mixing, and how to document their work for a digital portfolio. Adria's encouraging style of positive reinforcement and periodic showerings from her watering can ensure that brush wielders of all skill levels blossom and develop their own artistic niche.
