J.E.K. Painting founder and third-generation craftsman Jim Kerr assembled his licensed and insured team without the use of subcontractors and with classic workmanship as its primary objective. In addition to cloaking interior and exterior walls and trim in swaths of color, Kerr and his team provide a sprawling assortment of handyman services. This includes applying and removing wallpaper, power-washing decks, and calling upon Kerr's EPA certification in the renovation of homes containing lead. Color consultations help homeowners to determine what hue will best match Dad's favorite corduroy slacks, and a selection of eco-friendly, water-based paint imparts a new look with less odor and fewer VOCs than traditional paint.
Amazing Glaze makes it simple for amateur artisans and ceramic virtuosos to produce colorful pottery pieces using a variety of stencils, stamps, and tracing outlines. Start by choosing your desired paint-vessel from a vast selection of more than 400 ceramic compositions ($3–$50), including coffee mugs and dinner plates to adorn kitchens and vases to grow your pet panda's bamboo snacks in. Pick a design from the store's volumes of sample books or enlarge a wallet-sized photo of your homecoming date on the studio's copy machine, select from more than 100 colors, and then create a design for your earthenware masterpiece. For the artistically stymied, on-staff artists will be standing by to assist with the pigmenting process. Glazing, firing, and brilliantly hued paints are included in the $7 per hour studio fee (caps off at $12/day), and polished objects are ready five days later.
Since 1995, the friendly and artistic team members at The Painting Workshop have spiked patrons’ creative juices with quality materials, inspirational subject matter, and a generous splash of encouragement. Enroll one or two pre-adolescent postmodernists (ages 5–10) in the Painting on Canvas workshop, then enjoy some wasabi peas and quiet as the youngsters make paint fly based on their imaginations or a studio-provided still life, an ideal tool for those looking to hone their color-matching and snack-resisting abilities. The workshop also welcomes groups of adults. The Art & Pizza workshop begins with projects spanning the realms of crafts, painting, and sculpting dough into fully functional grandfather clocks. Next, pizza presents itself to kids, who can stare cross-eyed at the sauce palettes in hopes of finding hidden pepperoni messages. The Painting Workshop provides all materials and requires no fine- or coarse-arts prerequisites for enrollment. Check the schedule for an idea of upcoming class times.
