Helmed by a team of local artists, Your Artistic Spirits holds informal visual-arts consortia in local venues such as Bier Brewery, Black Swan Brewpub, and Bodega. At each location, they welcome participants of all skill levels and disciplines to sip wine, beer, or spirits as they make art focused in a range of artistic styles, from neoclassical busts to avant-garde booms. Instructors guide attendees through step-by-step instruction to create original works in one chosen medium, such as acrylics, watercolors, sculpting clay, or papier-mâché. When not conducting public classes and private parties, artistic staffers lead team-building workshops and art-therapy programs for children and adults.

Neither instructor at Salsannati expected a career in dance. Ivana, a native of Croatia, only started dancing in 2004; Frederic, on the other hand, started when he was just 8 years old and spent his teenage years teaching others but never enlisted in any formal training. Their mutual passion is what fuels Salsannati, where they teach beginners and advanced dancers the art of salsa. Classes typically center around basic steps, turns, and footwork combinations as foundations for more advanced moves.
