At All About You Spa and Fitness, nails and lashes receive special attention. Nail technician Sacha has spent over eight years applying acrylics and gels to both hands and feet throughout the Oklahoma City area. Mugs also get to spend time in the spotlight during eyelash extensions.
Painting A Night Out hosts guided painting events lasting 2–3 hours, accented by beverages and camaraderie, at different venues around Oklahoma City. Artists of all skill levels can perch in front of a provided canvas, and then follow the lead of an instructor demonstrating how to reproduce a featured painting. Attendees may also choose to add personal tweaks to the imagery or work on a completely independent design. Subject matter constantly changes but often includes colorful tree silhouettes, still lifes with wine, flowers, and sunset scenes that look like sunrise scenes when held upside down.
All materials are provided, including canvases, paint, aprons, and brushes. While friends or couples can arrive hand in hand and enjoy a group night out, solo artists are equally encouraged to mingle and acquire new acquaintances.
Breathing and gentle stretches kick off a typical hatha-influenced yoga class at Awaken Your Senses Yoga, helping students relax and find their centers.

At a time when many schools around the country are forced to cut back on art programs, Abrakadoodle has emerged to fill the empty creative space left behind. The studio began in 2002, when founders Mary Rogers and Rosemarie Hartnett set out to unify proven educational methods with kid-friendly art instruction. By opening Abrakadoodle, the duo wanted youngsters to experience one of the most rewarding aspects of art: having fun.
Today, Mary and Rosemarie’s vision has developed to include mobile programs that expand imaginations across the United States, as well as studios stationed throughout the world. With guidance from Abrakadoodle’s certified teachers, adults or students aged 20 months to 14 years practice various means of self-expression during painting, drawing, sculpting, and design classes. While developing new skills and keeping the stain-remover industry in business, pintsize Picassos explore their own talents and learn about professional artists. Abrakadoodle keeps all of its class sizes small and caters to students of any skill level.
