The Paint Mixer's teachers invite guests to express their inner creativity with a bit of help from their guidance and perhaps a glass of wine. During two-hour classes, they lead students in recreating a particular painting, be it a grove of aspen trees, soaring bat, or series of colorful, abstract shapes that look just like a bowl of fruit. A class includes all materials—canvas, paints, aprons, and brushes are all on hand—though students should supply their own beverages.

For more than 60 years, the staff at YMCA Camp Roger has been developing programs that get kids and teens off the couch and in the great outdoors. In doing so, its aim is to help the kids develop social skills that can foster confidence, independence, and leadership. In addition to traditional sleepover camps—where 6–10 kids stay in cabins at night and practice mountain biking, archery, hiking, and arts and crafts during the day—the camp offers focused programs such as creative arts or horseback riding. And if the clan needs a break from the housecat’s despotic demands, it can attend a family camp over Labor Day weekend.

To more than 9,000 students, artist Harold Petersen is known simply as ?Pete.? In founding the Petersen Art Center in 1994, Pete created a place where creative minds could come together, express themselves, and share their abilities with others. Pete has been teaching for more than 50 years, and he continues to lead students each week in the fine arts of drawing and working with watercolors. In addition to giving pupils the benefits of his own expertise, he has assembled a crack team of sculptors, painters, and visual artists to help students navigate the right sides of their brains.
