Painting classes with Uptown Art - Uncorked allow artists of all ages and skill levels to spend a few hours expressing their creative impulses. Each session focuses on a designated theme, based on the style of a particular artist, such as Monet, or a particularly beautiful still-life subject, such as gerber daisies or a puddle of spilled tabasco sauce. For groups of aspiring Picassos or people with more than three hands, the studios also host painting parties to accommodate birthday celebrations, bachelorette soirees, work retreats, and sorority events.
Spirited Art helps painters of all skill levels and ages channel their inner Van Goghs during step-by-step art lessons that render colorful masterpieces. The instructors keep the environment fun and lighthearted as students pick up provided brushes, stand at their easels, and conjure their muses before laying out such compositions as Klimt's The Kiss, a still life with coffee cups, or a Monet-inspired landscape. Pupils can snack on treats brought from home as they add color to their canvas, and adults can bring wine to lubricate the flow of ideas. At the end of the lesson, each painter totes home a finished magnum opus to grace a mantel or cover up the results of practicing their javelin throw indoors.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
The roaming chefs of Divine Dinners provide a trifecta of services to feed their clients. All they need is a kitchen.

They also host hands-on cooking classes at private homes or onsite at Divine Dinner's decked-out kitchen. Additionally, they offer catering services, handling all aspects of feeding large groups during special events.

Gliding scales and familiar melodies have drifted through CSU Schwob Music Prep since 1978. In 2002 the school began welcoming students to their new studio within the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts on the Columbus State University campus. The $77 million facility, which houses the university's Schwob School of Music, is equipped with multiple performance halls and a recording studio. In private rooms, instructors conduct lessons in instruments such as piano, guitar, violin, cello, and flute, and vocalists lead singing lessons. The teachers readily communicate with parents about their children's progress.
