From tie-dye ($35 per child) to garden-themed parties ($25), Pikasso's children's classes fresh-squeeze creative juices for the grade-school set. During a feet-print-platter class ($45 per child), kids create an adorable plate marked with their footprints. Adults can hone painterly techniques at clay, fused glass, or wire-wrapping and beaded-jewelry classes. Wheel-thrown pottery classes, taught by an expert potter, are available at $50 per person for a two-hour session (two-student minimum). Offsite events and parties add color to corporate events, birthdays, and home fumigations, and Practically Pikasso can supply 20–200 painters with supplies, helpful staff, and instruction (call ahead to inquire about costs).
At being, owner Amy Bromley draws on her two decades of professional design experience to help shoppers convert their spaces into breathtaking expressions of style. Throw pillows burst with geometric and animal-print designs in the show room, which also holds kiln-dried hardwood furnishings and handmade jewelry and accents. Like the formal plaid suit of a lumberjack, pieces in the show room express both an elegant gentility and rustic, rough-hewn ethos. Shoppers peruse vases carved from driftwood, tables made from twisted roots, and candleholders made of silvery deer antlers. The attentive staff at being works hand in hand with homeowners to help make over living spaces with in-home appointments and full-scale consultations from professional designers.
Since opening in 1987, Great Explorations Children's Museum has sparked a love for learning for visitors of all ages with a constantly rotating lineup of interactive exhibits that fill 18,000 square feet with touch, light, and sound. Whether they're learning about nearby sea life at Beth's Beach, honing their knowledge of textures on a crawl through the Touch Tunnel, or exploring arachnids in the Critter Cave, kids benefit from each exhibit's emphasis on interactivity. Visitors can find friendly professionals and their orange polo shirts bouncing between exhibits while performing science experiments, dancing, and playing music.
In addition to visiting the museum's permanent exhibits, kids can also take extend their learning journeys through the museum's lengthy list of camps and programs. The museum even takes its show on the road, with the Express Yourself Art Mobile bringing creative craft opportunities to neighborhoods around St. Petersburg.
After Sweet! By The Cake Factory’s bakers pull the day’s cupcakes out of the oven, they stop short of slathering them with swirls of buttercream frosting or sprinkling on M&M's or nuts. Instead, they invite guests to decorate their own confections at a cupcake bar stocked with cookie and candy toppings. This hands-on approach lends itself to lively birthday parties, wherein a photographer snaps children in aprons, chef’s hats, and rubber Julia Child masks as they decorate six cupcakes each. The bakery’s Sweet to Others campaign proffers a predesigned cupcake each month whose proceeds benefit nonprofit organizations.
