Walls garnished with thought-provoking masterpieces make living rooms into museums with couches where friends and family love to lounge. Ki Gifts and Custom Framing has acted as a secondary curator to museums with couches all over the city by offering always-friendly and knowledgeable art advice. The charming shop's custom-framing services take the guesswork out of border binding your beautiful prints, paintings, and more. Digitally overlay frames and mats onto your masterpiece through Wizard's Integrated Framer software, which allows you to see the final product before its analog conception. Although pricing varies based on quality of frame, mat, and glass, complete pieces start at around $60 for 11"x14" and $160 for 24"x36".
Artistic Edge celebrates art in all its forms with a selection of more than 1,000 custom frame options as well as creative classes. During two-hour art classes for preteen Picassos, held Saturdays at 10 a.m., veteran elementary-school art teacher Linda Howell leads students ages 6–11 through a different project each week. The sessions, which include materials, may cover a range of traditional techniques such as drawing, painting, sculpture, or swaddling skyscrapers in orange fabric.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
