Art instructors, wedding and fashion photographers, and the paparazzi of the avian world populate the staff at Imagination Digital Art School. Placing working photographers at the helm of every class, the school offers beginners and casual enthusiasts a glimpse at how the pros envision, set up, and carry out the perfect shot. Workshops send students through crash courses on lighting, composition, or the technical aspects of their cameras, and ventures in the field visit scenic locales such as Adventure Aquarium and Barnegat Lighthouse, which sailors have long loved for its flattering lighting.
Learning to read, solve math problems, or master any school subject relies on one thing: the brain. With this in mind, the coaches at LearningRx eschew traditional tutoring methods that focus on one subject at a time. Instead, they use brain-training games and other mind exercises designed to hone a child's overall cognitive skills. The coaches work with students of all abilities, including gifted children. They also specialize in helping those with ADHD, autism, and dyslexia. LearningRx's team also works with adults and seniors.
After working her way through college as a bartender, Denise Mitchell opened Bucks County School of Bartending in 1999. Her BA from Arcadia University led to a teaching certification, and she decided to mix all of her talents together with her bartending school. Eleven years later, the Casino Dealer School was added, and graduates from this multifaceted institution go on to place bets and mix drinks in casinos, bars, and warp zones around the state. Courses often include a strategy handout for tips on betting and bluffing, and Mitchell's instructors draw on their experiences in casinos across the globe to give true-to-life advice. Alternatively, the standard curriculum of her bartending seminars builds professional bartenders from the ground up with lessons in bar equipment, pouring, and how to listen to patrons' life confessions without screaming.
Like the quadruple-digit fire inside The Crefeld Glass Studio's furnace, the instructors' enthusiasm for glassworking helps budding artists create things they could not have attempted on their own. Classes are kept at four to eight students so that everyone gets a clear view of classmates as they work the furnace. Regular pop-ins from visiting artists imbue The Crefeld Glass Studio with a collaborative vibe, and an online gallery gives students a place to proudly show off the exquisitely rounded rims of their amber-streaked vases or the short-sightedness of their delicate glass sledgehammers.
Since the early 1940s, Hortman Aviation Services Inc. has carried on the passion of its founders, the Horton family, which has included pilots for commercial lines, crop dusting, and the U.S. Air Force. Today, the fleet of instructors boasts credentials as impressive as the 10 types of planes they maintain onsite for training and rentals. In addition to charters, the crew combines airtime, ground training, and practice in a flight simulator when guiding students in the CFR part 141 flight school.
