At The Art Room Ltd. Co., there's a class to fit every budding artist. Kids can stretch their creative muscles while making paper puppets and masks with crayons and glue, or learning to paint self-portraits. Instructor-led parties for adults, on the other hand, may involve painting more grownup projects such as coasters or wine glasses. On Thursday and Friday nights, BYOB sessions throw wine into the mix, letting adults paint in a relaxed environment. And for those looking for more structured art instruction, weekly classes for both kids and adults focus on topics such as painting techniques and which paints are not edible.
Licensed acupuncture practitioners Joanna Lei Shelton and Molly McMichael gently stimulate acupuncture points with fine filiform needles in treatments targeted to each client's specific health concerns. Patrons relax on comfortable tables nestled in quiet, private rooms with individual temperature controls that keep patients comfortable and able to continue pranks on Arctic explorers. The session lasts between 60 and 90 minutes, depending on the client's health concerns, and the practitioner draws on extensive experience to tenderly insert the sterile, disposable needles, which stimulate trigger points. The acupuncturist communicates with the patient during the process to keep the treatment as pain-free as possible and cause only sensations of tingling, pressure, or light quilting.
