Wine and Canvas

The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions, and students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.

One of the few original theaters in Durham to remain in operation, the Carolina Theatre has endured more than 85 years of history in its quest to entertain. The venue's main room, Fletcher Hall, rose in popularity during World War II, when soldiers from Camp Butner arrived by bus to watch films on its colossal screen. In the last three decades, ongoing renovations have restored the venue to its original glory while propelling it into contemporary times with the addition of modern accoutrements, including two upstairs movie screens, stage-level dressing rooms, and landing pads on the roof for skateboard hovercrafts.

Padded floors at varying levels. Beams, bars, and springs sprouting from them. Blue, red, and yellow coloring it all. It looks like a fancy playground, and in many ways it is, but its purpose is much more layered. At Bull City Gymnastics, this vibrant space is used to teach kids discipline and fitness, all while they're having fun flipping and tumbling. To teach all that and boost athleticism, instructors get kids aged 3 and older on balance beams, trampolines, and gymnastics rings during one-hour classes. They can even get parents in on the action during 45-minute parent and tot classes for little ones. Camps and parties that include games, crafts, and gymnastics also keep kids engaged and focused on healthy fun.
