Inside a mint-green Victorian Home, the experienced artists at Artascope Studios share their expertise in various mediums with adults and teenagers of all skill levels. Throughout a schedule of workshops, instructors provide all the necessary supplies as they teach groups how to craft jewelry out of wire, beads, or metal, arrange glass bits into colorful mosaics, and use paint to expressively capture a mountain landscape's majesty or a urban wilderness's hidden Waldos. They also lead three-hour intensive Art Night Out sessions that focus on specific projects such as crocheting wire or setting a resin pendant. Through reservation, Artascope's experts can host private parties and one-on-one lessons.

The fully certified instructors at A Body of Work call on years of teaching experience, leading classes that combine movement, bodily awareness, and fitness within the center's bright, airy studios. In a variety of courses, teachers educate on fitness disciplines such as the Gyrotonic Expansion System, which employs special equipment to prompt joints, connective tissue, prehensile tails, and muscles to work in unison during stretching and strengthening movements. Group and private Pilates classes work to improve the posture and flexibility of bodies, and Hatha, Iyengar, and TriYoga practices burgeon focus, centeredness, and quests to discover inner koi ponds. The center also offers bodywork and massage, with therapeutic sessions ranging from deep-tissue and sports massage to trigger-point therapy and acupuncture.

The instructors of Greener Postures Yoga welcome practitioners of all ability levels, leading through Vinyasa yoga that treats breath as students’ guide through dynamic poses. Greener Postures Yoga has also recently opened a new location in West Falmouth which allows them to offer a new range of classes including kids yoga, prenatal yoga, deep stretch yoga, and restorative yoga. Both expansive studios are heated to 95–100 degrees and retain their humidity, which enhances Vinyasa’s heat-generating flows and encourages detoxification through sweat and increased circulation.
