Repartee Gallery & Frameworks' framing specialists provide a variety of services for preserving paintings and keepsake objects. Because each frame, glass, and matting combination sums up to a different cost, an in-house architect spends one-on-one time with clients to compose projects that stay within budget and truly complement macaroni art. Custom projects ($50+) need not conform to a standard rectangular shape or size, but can take the shape of the object within, be it a baseball glove, an insect collection, or an autographed bocce ball.
The photographers of fortune at Kiddie Kandids Portrait Studio are seasoned kid-wranglers, and will prove their prowess at capturing high-spirited younglings in their oft-rumored but rarely seen "still" state—capturing smiles at their finest. To avoid the stiff, artificial poses that so often result from preserving offspring in carbonite, Kiddie Kandids Portrait Studio's shutterbugs get the wee ones relaxed and comfortable so that the special spark of their personality shines through naturally. After the session, (session fee normally $14.99), the best poses will be reassembled into striking 10"x13" and 16"x20" wall portraits ($19.99 and $59.99, respectively) complete with your choice of portrait enhancements ($9.99 each) such as black and white, sepia tone, or Robocop-vision.
In an unassuming building tucked away off a suburban road, enormous fish swim, pastel penguins turn their backs to the wind, and giraffes in sunglasses strut. These works are the result of art camps and classes for students aged 4 and older at Mesa Art Studio. Founder Kris Cannaday has taught art in various forms and mediums for more than 25 years, but she continues to enhance her brush skills by attending seminars, taking art classes, and painting designs on loved ones’ faces while they sleep. She teaches courses geared toward kids' attention spans as well as broad-ranging adult classes that last up to two hours. Cannaday’s patient approach to teaching allows her to reach students of all skill levels, including those with learning and physical disabilities. During her three-day summer camps, she also introduces kids to arty fundamentals. During the trio of sessions, kids armed with art markers, colored pencils, or even pastels engage with projects ranging from portraits of zoo animals and cartoony faces to kiddie-sized facsimiles of works by masters from Van Gogh to Cezanne.
