Embracing itself as a place to induce artistic inspiration, the newly-renovated Bailey Contemporary Arts finds itself at the crossroads of the Palm Beach region's artists along with its residents and businesses. From cutting-edge exhibitions of the area's up-and-coming artists, to hands-on community workshops for creating contemporary art and music of their own, the thriving neighborhood center offers experiences of all ages and backgrounds abound. In their space, BaCA not only exudes the benefits of culture, but also uses the power of arts to revitalize and build a stronger community.
Green Children's House works toward a better future in two ways: by maintaining eco-friendly practices, and by doing its part in creating the next generation of environmental leaders. Established in 2008, the non-profit school has built its educational approach on the findings of Dr. Maria Montessori, making it a Montessori school.
This approach emphasizes activity-based learning, allowing children to pick up skills at their own pace instead of forcing them to join packs of street-wise cats. During class time, students aged 3 months to 10 years interact with staff members while learning about science, math, arts, and even non-traditional subjects such as gardening. No matter the subject, though, the school makes good on its Green name by using paper only when necessary and utilizing technology that adheres to the same earth-friendly philosophy.
Self-discipline, confidence, determination—these are just a handful of the many attributes students gain from studying martial arts. It's no different at Amerikick, the national chain of martial-arts schools where youngsters, teens, and adults immerse themselves in classes that develop both physical prowess and strength of character. The Little Dragons program instills focus and coordination in children ages 5 to 7, and the Karate Kids track incorporates a character development program into its Judo and Kung Fu lessons. Adults have their pick of kickboxing and Amerikick Fitness classes, both of which help participants shed pounds, tone limbs, and learn self-defense moves that come in handy when fellow sports fans try to high-five them too aggressively.
