Helmed by a team of local artists, Your Artistic Spirits holds informal visual-arts consortia in local venues such as Bier Brewery, Black Swan Brewpub, and Bodega. At each location, they welcome participants of all skill levels and disciplines to sip wine, beer, or spirits as they make art focused in a range of artistic styles, from neoclassical busts to avant-garde booms. Instructors guide attendees through step-by-step instruction to create original works in one chosen medium, such as acrylics, watercolors, sculpting clay, or papier-mâché. When not conducting public classes and private parties, artistic staffers lead team-building workshops and art-therapy programs for children and adults.
More than 75 participating courses welcome Indiana Golf Pass holders to their lush and verdant terrains. Card-bearing putt pendulators can head straight to their preferred course for discounted play, their pass allowing them to forgo membership fees and arcane initiation rites such as quoting the entirety of Caddyshack in pig Latin. Passes are chipped to doorsteps about two weeks after orders are placed. Proceeds help support the Indiana Golf Foundation's junior golf programs, which bring healthy outdoor recreation into the lives of kids who might otherwise never know how to spot and avoid a fang-lined sand trap.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don?t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan?s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.

Promoting safety and responsibility are the two main goals of the staff at Parabellum Firearms. The instructors accomplish this by leading classes that cover introductory-level firearm safety and basic maintenance skills as well as courses that qualify students to apply for a non-resident Utah concealed-carry license, which is recognized in Indiana and other states. Additionally, the range at Parabellum Firearms provides visitors with a controlled environment for supervised, live-fire practice.
At any given time, the rowers making their synchronized strides across the Eagle Creek Reservoir could be adults or youths, Olympic-level competitive athletes or recreational paddlers out for exercise and sun. This variation in ages, backgrounds, and skill levels is in keeping with the Indianapolis Rowing Center's mission of popularizing the sport regardless of socioeconomic status or past experience. Upon opening the center in 1982 at Eagle Creek Park, the founders began to instill their nonprofit, Olympic-level training and competition knowhow unto rowers of all levels. Oarsmen buzz about the boathouse March–November, getting tips and taking lessons from a staff that includes a 2008 Beijing Olympian as well as collegiate-level competitors. Over time, the IRC has created a regional hub for rowing with its many programs for high-school, collegiate, and adult athletes as well as hosting collegiate rowing championships.
