Elida Field’s sources of inspiration have ranged from regal horses to lush flowers to undulating Italian landscapes—which she revisits from time to time with fledgling art lovers in Italian art tours. Painted straight from the heart with a little help from the hands, her most recent works find her exploring the feminine form as she combines drawing and color with collages of photos and inspiring quotes. Her works have been showcased in Texas, Oregon, and Washington while on vacation from her studio, which doubles as a teaching space.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Swimming is a great fitness tool that people of all ages can enjoy. It is the one sport that positively cross trains for every other sport as well as being a sport that can be enjoyed your entire lifetime. How many football players are still playing in their 60s, 70s, 80s? Go to any Masters Swim Meet and there will be lots of seniors swimming.
Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain”? Why or why not?
Although it is important to work hard to make improvements, working to the point of actual pain usually means injury, which is never a good idea.
What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?
Learning to swim is both fun and functional. Classes are focused on making the process as fun as possible while continuing to move the students to becoming competent swimmers. We have high expectations for our students but want to keep lessons fun enough they will look forward to returning each class.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our offer includes youth levels 1-3 group swim lessons as well as our Parent & Tot class.

Each of the guitar coaches at American Guitar Academy are certified in the school’s signature teaching method. Developed over 25 years, this house-honed instruction technique incorporates scientific research to help fingers learn to shred frets up to eight times faster than alternative methods. During private half-hour lessons, instructors guide budding rock stars aged 4 years and up through the basics of strumming chords and seamlessly stitching together riffs. These comprehensive lessons on classical, electric, or acoustic guitars are offered once a week with a live instructor or online and guarantee that students will be playing their favorite music within six months of training. Students may begin lessons without owning a guitar, but are encouraged to gain access to one quickly for mastering scales and the ability to solo with their teeth.
After retiring from her career as a hospice nurse, Cindy jumped at the chance to fulfill a long-held dream. With the assistance of her husband, Tom, a builder, and her daughter Katie, who manages the books, Cindy called upon her nearly 40 years of knitting experience to establish littlelamb and Ewe.
The boutique store, created for experienced hobbyists and first-timers alike, shelters an extensive collection of yarn, needles, notions, and patterns. Inside, Cindy shares all the nuggets from her trove of knitting knowledge with guests, offering helpful advice, personal lessons, and weekly group classes. Customers equipped with new materials can settle in upstairs in the shop’s cozy knitting lounge and use a computer to print patterns or scour YouTube for videos of argyle-patterned sheep for inspiration.
