Though the word collage may conjure images of elementary-school projects covered in macaroni art, the form has been around for centuries and practiced by renowned artists such as Picasso and Matisse. Twin Soul Art Studio founder Jeanne teaches the techniques of collage to students as young as 7, drawing on her BFA in graphic design and career as a children’s book illustrator. During classes and collage parties, Jeanne guides each student toward creating aesthetic and functional pieces with disparate items such as newspaper clippings, buttons, photos, and pets' obedience-school diplomas.

Holy City Art Glass—housed in a ghost town's one-time post office—sets a historic stage for anyone to learn the time-honored art of creating glass art. Over the course of the two-hour session, accomplished owner Tom Stanton and his cadre of savvy, dedicated glass-art gurus steer the class of 8–10 artistes-to-be through a triumvirate of traditional glass-making processes. Students will first learn how to engrave glass surfaces by etching a star onto a beveled piece of glass, utilizing the same processes that expert artisans employ to cut Waterford Crystal and tree-trunk love poems for JJJfilms.

Having shot more than 30,000 subjects throughout his career as a photographer, including many Silicon Valley business figures, Eric Gould understands how to create a good photo in any setting. His adeptness at communicating with subjects carries into his photography workshops, where he conveys difficult concepts clearly and methodically, saving students from such rookie mistakes as shooting with the lens cap on or turning the flash on while taking pictures of your imaginary friend's third grade graduation. In his own photo sessions, he frames professional clients in business portraits and headshots, high-school seniors in youthful poses, athletes in midaction, and a wide spectrum of people and places encountered on international travels.
