Color Cocktail Factory is the domain of three artists?MFA grads from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago?who work as professional painters, illustrators, and printmakers. These artists started Color Cocktail Factory as a way to share their knowledge with novice practitioners in a laid-back environment. But they know that for less-experienced paint slingers, the idea of coating a whole canvas can be wildly intimidating, especially if their third and fourth arms have yet to grow in. So they encourage students to drink, organizing social BYOB lessons where students work on the same guided project. At the end of the session, well-hydrated pupils take home their very own paintings, which might be a sugar-skull portrait, a landscape, or the recreation of a famous masterpiece.
Whether online or in-person, Allure Beauty Lounge outfits epidermises with a slew of high-quality products. Licensed aestheticians man the brick-and-mortar boutique, where they dispel four types of facials—such as the Organic Apple Soufflé treatment, complete with hot towels and an apple-spice mask. They also smooth skin with fruit-acid chemical peels and waxing for the face and body. The team dolls up brides and prom queens for their big day, and teaches budding makeup artists all the essentials, from applying concealer to playing up their cheekbones, third eye, or lips. Online, customers can fill their electronic shopping carts with mineral eye shadow, smudge-proof mascara, and cream foundation in 19 shades.

DeBoudoir photographers specialize in setting their clients at ease, carefully directing poses and maneuvering lighting to elicit flattering shots that smack of self-confidence. During trademark boudoir sessions, subjects wear sumptuous lingerie or drape their nude frames strategically in sheepskins and blankets before posing in-studio or on the beach. DeBoudoir tweaks this photo formula for its other services, which include engagement sessions and pinup shoots, during which subjects wear stylish vintage garb.
DeBoudoir's lingerie boutiques brim with corsets and accessories such as hats, gloves, and thigh high stockings. Lingerie, meanwhile, runs the gamut from negligees to underthings more delicate than an aging movie starlet?s ego.
An elegantly stenciled gray, metal door heralds Both Sides’ studio space, an attention-focusing haven of clean lines, white walls, and ample natural light. It’s planted in Pilsen’s main arts corridor, meaning that students need only wander down the block to soak up inspiration from other galleries.
Within this space each day, the instructors at Both Sides Art aim to stimulate the left and right sides of their students' brains with art classes that encourage wild flights of creativity grounded in a solid grasp of technique and history. Adult courses take place weekday evenings and cover topics such as drawing for beginners and abstract painting. While enjoying a BYOB glass of wine or sippy cup of champagne, students learn essential skills such as drawing 3-D images, handling oil paints, and poetically telling off their inner critics.
