Nestled across 31 acres of scenic terrain, The Cave cuts radio-ready professional soundscapes with the assistance of 1,500-square-foot, 32-track recording facility and a lineup of talented in-house backup musicians. Artists can use up to 10 hours of studio time to record prized tracks, work through new ideas with Wild Oats' seasoned songsters, or prepare an audition disc for the 23rd annual Professional Tambourinists Convention. Though the finished product will depend on the goals and experience of each musician, well-prepared and focused artists may leave the studio with several fully mixed tracks in hand. Wild Oats accommodates solo performers or bands, but all group members must be able to fit in the space and keep time with a vuvuzela when required.

When budding artists step into Uptown Art, inspiration swarms their minds. Within a lofty, open studio, paintings from past pupils line the walls and easels sit on long tables, waiting to host their next masterpiece. After selecting a theme from the schedule, adult painters tie on an apron, load up a palette with acrylic paints, and sip a BYO beverage for courage before searching within for their inner Picasso and the Lego they swallowed as a child. After two to three hours of socialization, discovery, and instructor guidance, students return home with a masterfully rendered landscape, an abstract still life, or an expressive butterfly.
During kids' classes, wee ones gain inspiration and a helping hand from the friendly teachers. Daytime sessions focus on topics fitting for growing minds, such as painting a teddy bear or using shapes to express existential yearning.
After 15 years in the film-production business as an art director, Decorating Magic Nashville instructor Susan Wolf turned her creative flair toward home decorating. She now uses her eye for design to teach students how to paint and decorate furniture. Her chalk-painting class uses specialty chalk paint to repurpose anything from a small candlestick to a side table. The latex-painting class employs a more common paint to cheaply prime and redesign a piece of furniture. More advanced classes, such as crackle painting, stenciling, peeling paint, and faux finishes, add finer touches to side tables and floor-cloth paintings.
Christian Youth Theater helps nurture kids' artistic talents through theater arts classes and camps. Children between the ages of 4 and 18 glean tips from experienced teachers, such as how to safely perform slapstick stunts, design a set, and overcome their fear of auditions. To that end, the theater welcomes students to try out for its Broadway-style productions and to show off their skills in end-of-term showcases.
