Main Line Center for Bartending provides a hands-on learning environment to become a Pennsylvania-state-licensed bartender in just one, two, or five weeks. Each class spends at least 80% of the time behind the bar, with the remaining time filled with lectures, role-playing, or brainstorming how to mix undiscovered beauties, such as the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster. In class, students tend to a 35-foot bar completely stocked with all the necessary equipment. By the end of each session, wet-eared barkeeps will grasp the mixing of more than 250 drinks, ins and outs of general bar duties, and how to enlighten patrons with astute customer service and a convincingly consoling wipe-down of the guest-tender gap.
The Intro to Photography class is produced by Monte Zucker Photographic Education (MZPE), which provides quality professional photographic instruction. More than 30,000 enthusiastic students of all levels have attended their photographic tours on three continents over the past seven years to learn how to combine the power of technical expertise and artistic vision to create beautiful photos and films. In addition to offering the tours, MZPE produces instructional books and DVDs, as well as teaching in-depth photo-master classes around the world. The 2002 United Nations Photographer of the Year, celebrated photographer and mentor Monte Zucker once stated, "I don’t photograph the world as it is. I photograph the world as I would like it to be." Continuing on in his memory, current instructor Bob Ray teaches with an entertaining, passionate presentation that focuses on learning immediately in class. The experience provides an aspiring photographer a comprehensive set of tools to reach his or her artistic potential.
