Sam Flax South outfits artists and designers with supplies and furniture from top industry brands such as Herman Miller, Humanscale, and Steelcase to produce masterpieces on any scale. Easels grip canvases as painters blanket them in polychromatic oils and acrylics, just as drafting tables, rulers, and protractors help architects draft the blueprint for the first home built entirely of discarded totem poles. Guests can leaf through paper products and readymade gifts including delicate cards, journals, and calendars. Treasured prints also find displayable homes in Sam Flax’s custom-framing department, where artisans design hangable enclosures that accentuate a picture with a contrasting mat color or an oversize neon arrow that points directly to the image. The in-house framing center applies acid-free matting and seals art in airtight materials to preserve pieces.
Marvelous Light Studios staff specializes in capturing more than what meets the eye—love and hope, for example, during an engagement session set in a park, or the sense of accomplishment radiating from a senior portrait. Even the titles of the studio's photo packages imply that photography can go beyond the visual. Family photo shoots are part of "The Heritage" sessions, whereas "The Legacy" package showcases an individual's unique character and talents.
Having been behind the lens for more than 28 years, Marvelous Light Studio's photographers have mastered the art of both indoor and outdoor photography. Services range from capturing and editing actor's headshots in the studio to documenting weddings and other parties in a photojournalistic style. This approach encourages natural candid moments and brings emotion to the final, retouched print. The studio can also photograph children, expectant mothers, and couples in their prom attire, who can use the pictures as a better keepsake than a clown-corsage that sprays water at their date.
Informed by an ever-growing body of developmental research, classes at The Music Class introduce tots to tunes and concepts that boost creativity and listening skills. In Music Pups (a $72 value) courses, children under 4 years of age gleefully sing, dance, and bang away on rudimentary instruments such as the drums or theremin. Four and 5-year-olds learn concepts of tone and rhythm in the Music Cats course (a $77 value), which lets kids experiment with keyboards before defending their dissertations on the narrative redundancies of "Old MacDonald Had a Farm." Each 45-minute course meets four times in one month-long segment, and includes CDs for parents to play at home to follow up on in-class tutelage. This Groupon may also be used toward The Music Class' ten-week music courses.
