Paint-n-Party’s staff members are so determined to immerse people in the fun, interactive world of art that they’ll bring the party directly to their patrons. Instructors regularly travel to the homes of fledgling Rembrandts, where they helm private painting parties complete with canvases, paints, and super soakers for Jackson Pollock impersonations. The staff also beckons patrons to Paint-n-Party’s brick-and-mortar establishment, where visitors can unleash their creativity during hands-on classes or artistic birthday parties.

Having begun studying at the Bronx Academy of Dance at age 7, she has since toured nationally and internationally, danced on MTV and Vh1, and appeared in both television shows and feature films. Today, she runs Rockwell Dance Academy, where she teaches students of all ages how to move in the old- and new-school styles of hip-hop.
Your Fired Creations believes that there is an artist inside everyone. Instead of climbing into a microscopic submarine to find them inside the bloodstream, the staff keep a hearty supply of equipment on hand to coax creative talents out though pottery, painting, and other activities. The studio's friendly instructors, including owner and certified art teacher Ann Marie Alford, provide guidance to keep creativity flowing freely from station to station. Wheel-throwing classes teach visitors how to knead and knuckle spinning clumps of clay into pieces of art, and fused-glass sessions transform tiny panes into colorful patchworks. Clients can also drag brushes through glazes and paints to decorate pottery or create colorful portraits.
