Warren Village’s Greta Horwitz Learning Center educates children ages 6 weeks to 10 years old with a curriculum designed specifically for underserved students. In addition to cognitive, language, social exercises, the learning center conducts regular cultural and recreational field trips in the Denver area to enrich student’s education. Each classroom of approximately 14 preschool children attends at least two trips each year to city venues such as the zoo, art museums, the symphony and theater, and the children’s museum. Field trips provide students with informative lessons in the arts and sciences and an opportunity for a new experience, and also build their sense of community with both their peers and their city.

"I basically live, eat, and breathe music," says Strum and Sip owner Christopher Bloom. A 27-year veteran guitar player, Bloom already had 15 years of teaching experience and his own production studio when he had the idea to open Strum & Sip with some friends. Setting up shop at local watering holes, the guitar virtuosos cultivate a laid-back ambiance where students can sip their favorite drink while teaching their fingers new chord shapes or plucking patterns and learning songs to serenade people at a family gathering or congressional filibusters.

David and Claudia Johnson, the founders of Palmer College of Languages, are in the business of breaking down communication barriers. They do so by teaching languages such as French, Spanish, German, and English as a second language, working to make mastering a second tongue a fun, pressure-free experience. Thanks to their beginner-friendly approach, students can often absorb new languages quickly, learning nouns, verbs, tenses, and various translations for ?Yowza!?

Outside of general courses, Palmer College of Languages also offers classes that specialize in Spanish or English in a business setting. Those heading to Spain, Mexico, or another Spanish-speaking country for leisure can take a class that focuses on how to communicate at a hotel, airport, or restaurant. Students readying their brains for exams can find curricula tailored to SAT and TOEFL questions.

SeaAnna captures vibrant moments in time: undulating wheat fields, abandoned train tracks, tattered prayer flags hung on a line. She sells canvas prints of these creations, photographed in natural light. SeaAnna brings the same exquisite eye for detail while photographing posed and candid images at her other sessions, which range from wedding and newborn photography to general portraiture. Said sessions result in prints and CDs with edited, high-resolution versions of SeaAnna’s best work, as well as client favorites.
