Color Me Mine puts paintbrushes and pottery in the mitts of customers old and young. Budding Toyozo Arakawas will follow six easy steps to craft beautifully painted ceramics, first choosing a ceramic piece (most cost between $8 and $14) from Color Me Mine's selection of hundreds of seasonally changing items. After charting out the desired design from individual imagination or Color Me Mine's technique sheets, painters will select an underglaze from Color Me Mine's cast of more than 60 colors, then apply paint with the focus of a peregrine falcon occupied by a Rockwellian spirit. Color Me Mine handles all kiln-firing work, allowing clients to take home their final products within three to five days. A studio fee of $5 for children under 12 and $8 for adults and children over 12 covers all paints, supplies, glazing, and firing.

Dog Training Elite's founder and head trainer John Mestas leans on 32 years of experience training pups of all shapes, sizes, and breath swampiness. He's worked with guide-dog puppies, coached members of a search-and-rescue team, and has trained police-department canines. In training programs for family pets, he leverages that experience to help pups learn behavioral basics and weeds out troublesome habits such as sitting on the furniture and jumping.
Morning Star Balloons ushers cloud hunters toward their quarry, navigating the skies as transfixed guests float high above Utah's pristine mountainscape. The seasoned, FAA-certified pilots employ experience flying military jets, winning numerous hot air balloon competitions, and establishing dominance over out-of-control umbrellas as they confidently steer the colorful vessels to heights of between 500–1,500 feet. Groups of up to 12 soar above Park City’s lush landscape and during early-morning flights, with a complimentary champagne or nonalcoholic toast welcoming passengers back to solid ground. Despite its burgeoning fame through the TV shows The Amazing Race and Nitro Circus, Morning Star Balloons keeps a level head as it donates its services to local schools and charities.
In an unassuming building tucked away off a suburban road, enormous fish swim, pastel penguins turn their backs to the wind, and giraffes in sunglasses strut. These works are the result of art camps and classes for students aged 4 and older at Mesa Art Studio. Founder Kris Cannaday has taught art in various forms and mediums for more than 25 years, but she continues to enhance her brush skills by attending seminars, taking art classes, and painting designs on loved ones’ faces while they sleep. She teaches courses geared toward kids' attention spans as well as broad-ranging adult classes that last up to two hours. Cannaday’s patient approach to teaching allows her to reach students of all skill levels, including those with learning and physical disabilities. During her three-day summer camps, she also introduces kids to arty fundamentals. During the trio of sessions, kids armed with art markers, colored pencils, or even pastels engage with projects ranging from portraits of zoo animals and cartoony faces to kiddie-sized facsimiles of works by masters from Van Gogh to Cezanne.
