Burgeoning artists in their junior and senior years of high school spend four days immersed in the topics of their choice, picking from disciplines such as interior design, game arts, and photography. Sketching, filming, and whisking meringue by day, the students work hard before shopping, dining, pool partying, or beret adjusting at night. Pupils who opt for lodging rest up for back-to-back, intensive courses in the local Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites, in between a packed agenda designed to proffer a taste of art school life.

Spurred by a drive to instill children with a love for the arts and to build their self-esteem, professional actor Miles McMahon helms an array of educational programs at Theatre of the Imagination.

The number one hair enemy is chewing gum. Number two is aesthetician Anna Mansaw, a graduate of The Marinello Schools of Beauty, who effortlessly banishes unflattering fuzz from your body and face. Her skills with an eyeliner pencil are equally impressive. All it takes is time, patience, and a little inspiration and Anna can create a discrete eyelid fade or go all out with a bold leopard-print design.

At TIKITUM, fun sits at the top of a pyramid of priorities, followed by art, science, nature, and sensory integration. Yet each of those priorities gets its due and then some inside the exploration space, which engages kids' five senses with different hands-on displays and activities. Kids ages 3 to 7 can come by for an open house, or attend an art class in the LAB. The classes might blend science and art with play, for instance by exploring the lights and colors of outer space. There are even classes for children with special needs such as autism and ADD.
