"My love of color," states artist Linda Schoff, "and the way it can evoke an emotion is what inspires me as an artist." With work featured on CBS's Person of Interest and NBC's Smash, Schoff's inspiration makes an impact. Beyond sharing her vividly hued, dynamic paintings at gallery showings and juried exhibitions, she also shares how she creates them. She teaches aspiring artists in individual lessons and group classes, both in person and via Skype. In her group classes, students can bring along a bottle of wine to fuel their creativity.

The laws of physics seem to bend at Hotspot Glass Studio. Some visit to watch artists melt, twist, blow, and shatter their one-of-a-kind medium, and others get their gloves dirty in a class or workshop. The studio offers group sessions, private instruction, curricula for different experience levels, and a few courses just for teens. Once students have been endowed with a bit of glass-bending know-how and have learned to exhale fire, they can rent studio time from Hotspot. Many guests are content to bring their own masterpieces home, but for those who want works of professional craftsmanship, the studio also accepts commissions. In addition, owner Dylan Cotton and his fellow Hotspot artists craft light fixtures, centerpieces, and more to customers' specifications.

The Edge's Revolution program is an eight-week body-change contest that fuses nutritional guidance, personal training, and weekly group exercise sessions. Trainers document your metamorphosis with before-and-after measurements and photos, and by meticulously chiseling fitness goals into stone. Start sculpting with one personal-training and Pilates session, then sweat in weekly group workouts that prevent plateaus by pushing boundaries like a gerrymandering student council president. An included nutrition guide with DVD joins body sculptors on fitness sojourns with eating tips to supplement gym work. Revolutionaries also get access to a community that spans from the gym to an online group, providing a resource for advice, support, and camaraderie.
