A septuplet of subjects form the core of Seven Arts Center's curricula: the visual arts, literature, theater, multimedia, health, martial arts, and cooking. Through their daily classroom programs and radio station, Seven Arts Radio, the center?s teachers help adults and children across Atlanta develop into the kind of renaissance people rarely seen since Pablo Picasso made his action-movie debut. Painting classes can take the form of structured multisession courses for aspiring artists, or casual one-time events for those simply looking for a new hobby. Other classes give students tips on using computers, playing music, or passing the GED.
IndoCycle Studio is a spinning-only facility where members come for vigorous indoor group cycling workouts. Stationary Spinner NXT bikes are the focal point of each calorie-blasting workout—experienced instructors lead classes in high-energy cycling circuits, incorporating music, visual effects, and subliminal sounds of stampeding herds to help riders through intense sessions. Each workout is customizable to every individual’s fitness level, but the end result is the same for everyone; burn fat and build muscle during rides that simulate climbing hills and racing courses. IndoCycle Studio provides towels, water, and shoes for gym-goers, as well as gel seats for those who want extra cushioning.
The seasoned paint-slingers at The Blu' Bisque turn the art of pottery and canvas embellishment into a lively celebration with their kids' birthday parties, BYOB date nights for adults, and corporate events that emphasize carefree fun, uninhibited creativity, and paint-speckled aprons. The shop's hefty collection of bisque pieces anchors the floor with plates, coffee mugs, and figurines that wait patiently to be plucked and festooned with stencil designs, free-flowing brushstrokes, and floral motifs that symbolize the end of tax season. Not just an art studio, The Blu? Bisque also houses an upscale boutique that offers trendy gifts and accessories as well as brand-name apparel.
