Art instructors, wedding and fashion photographers, and the paparazzi of the avian world populate the staff at Imagination Digital Art School. Placing working photographers at the helm of every class, the school offers beginners and casual enthusiasts a glimpse at how the pros envision, set up, and carry out the perfect shot. Workshops send students through crash courses on lighting, composition, or the technical aspects of their cameras, and ventures in the field visit scenic locales such as Adventure Aquarium and Barnegat Lighthouse, which sailors have long loved for its flattering lighting.
Star Career Academy is staffed by many instructors who work at the academy's eight campuses. Students can also learn from professional chefs, such as Francesco Martorella, who specializes in incorporating unique ingredients in ethnic dishes, and earned a nod as one of the city's best new chefs. Star Career's offers training under a variety of umbrellas, from the culinary arts to medical services, including training for medical assistants, paramedics, and dialysis technicians. Founded in 1979, the academy has evolved to offer other programs, too, such as cosmetology and hospitality management.
Learning to read, solve math problems, or master any school subject relies on one thing: the brain. With this in mind, the coaches at Learning Solutions eschew traditional tutoring methods that focus on one subject at a time. Instead, they use brain-training games and other mind exercises designed to hone a child's overall cognitive skills. The coaches work with students of all abilities, including gifted children. They also specialize in helping those with ADHD, autism, and dyslexia. LearningRx's team also works with adults and seniors.

From Sky River Helicopters? locations at Sky Manor Airport and Cross Keys Airport, a fleet of Robinson helicopters thrums skyward while carrying flight-school pupils and sightseers. The team of flight-school instructors helps students to earn licenses as private or commercial pilots by showing them the ropes in the cockpits of R-22 or R-44 helicopters. During sightseeing tours, the Pocono Mountains, the New Jersey coastline, and the New York skyline sprawl out 1,500 feet below. Through the cockpit?s glassy bubble, the trees form impressionistic blurs, skyscrapers look like tiny spindles, and Godzilla?s underbite doesn?t seem that serious.
The Penn Museum hosts its fourth annual P.M. @ Penn Museum Summer Nights concert series, presented in the Museum's verdant outdoor Stoner Courtyard on the University of Pennsylvania’s idyllic campus. Just inside, guests can immerse themselves in the Museum's newest exhibition, "Black Bodies in Propaganda: The Art of the War Poster," before moving on to explore a world of art and artifacts, many obtained from archaeological and anthropological expeditions conducted by the Museum since its founding in 1887. Wandering its galleries, guests explore rare objects from the near and distant past, including those found in the Egypt (Sphinx) Gallery, home to a monumental granite sphinx circa 1200 BCE. Elsewhere, visitors marvel at intricate bronze and ivory carvings from West Africa's Kingdom of Benin, created between the 17th and 20th centuries, and intricately carved Maya stone stelae from pre-Columbian Mesoamerica. Changing exhibitions showcase travelling collections or draw from the Museum's vast collection of objects from every inhabited corner of the globe.
