When doctors told Joey and Darryl Simon that their son Jet’s premature birth could result in learning disabilities, the couple immersed him in the world of art as a means of helping him overcome any educational obstacles. Their tutelage and care paid off, resulting in an impressive array of paintings from their child at a very young age. Jet’s talent and creativity inspired his parents to establish 4Cats Arts Studio in hopes of unleashing the inner artists of other children as well as adults. The Simons accomplish this mission through hands-on sessions in mixed media, painting, and Artist Focus classes, which concentrate on the histories and styles of certain artists, such as Picasso’s cubism and Andy Warhol’s self-portraits of soup cans.
The First Step nurtures artists' innate qualities, cultivating a safe, welcoming environment where storytellers can ply fundamentals and overcome barriers to unearth courageous acting choices. Today's deal gets early stage thespians into their choice of a four-class, one-month program tailored to youth through adult actors. Taught by instructors active in Vancouver's film, TV, and theatre scenes and boasting work experience in the LA market, each program guides players through analyzing character, honouring their instinctive responses, and how to crush cans with subtext. The schedule places most class times in the afternoon and weeknights, with one daytime adult session. Class sizes are limited to 12 students, and spots must be secured through improvised staged combat or by calling ahead of time. All sessions take place at The First Step's 3,000-square-foot facility, a renovated warehouse equipped with four classrooms and specialized studios.

This discipline can move oxygenated blood throughout the body, increase muscle tone, improve overall health, and steam unsuspecting vegetables.

Though it’s only been open less than one year, Supernal Arts has already amassed an impressive cache of art in its private gallery. Paintings burst from their canvases in the form of an impressionist-style bouquet of red and white roses, a riverbed dotted with copper-hued stones and cascading water, and a wintry forest full of stark, bare trees. Visitors to the space can peruse paintings or take one of the many classes that teach the skills needed to craft such pieces. The instructors, all experienced artists themselves, harness their backgrounds and skills to lead students of all ages toward their own artistic goals, such as becoming a professional painter or exhibiting works somewhere other than inside the lion cage of the local zoo.
