  • Art Social San Francisco
    During three-hour classes at Art Social, instructors strive to foster an environment as lively as the paintings that inspire them. At various restaurants, wine bars, or galleries across the Bay Area, students begin the evening chatting with classmates against the backdrop of soft music and clinking wine glasses. Once students have settled into their personal painting stations, instructors delve into history, context, and scratch 'n' sniff features of the evening's chosen painting, which has included works such as Gustav Klimt's The Kiss or Van Gogh's Starry Night. Step-by-step instruction ensures students of all levels take home a personal masterpiece, whether it is a replica of the painting being taught or the bowls of fruit that haunt the student's mind.

  • Marrakech Magic Theater
    The Three Faces of Marrakech Magic Theater Peter Morrison Peter Morrison is the consummate performer. He's charismatic and charming, and his witty, but clean comedy makes his magic show something the whole family can enjoy. Peter's passion for magic shines through during his 75-minute shows, where, donned in a tuxedo, he performs everything from sleight-of-hand card tricks to cutting-edge illusions that leave viewers scratching their heads. Pre-Show in Sultan's Oasis The doors to Marrakech Magic Theater open one hour prior to every show. During this time, guests are invited to gather for cocktails and appetizers inside the Moroccan-style Sultan's Oasis lounge. But this isn't just any pre-show gathering—Peter visits with every group, getting to know his guests by name and performing magic tricks up-close-and-personal. It's a rare case of a performer doubling as his opening act, and it starts the evening on a friendly note. Intimate Parlor-Style Theater The theater’s intimate 45-person setup means there's not a bad seat in the house, placing all attendees mere feet from the stage. Subtle touches throughout make visits all the more enjoyable, starting with a candlelit entryway and continuing into the ornate, red-colored lounge. The elegant design might have you assuming the theater has been that way for decades, but think again: Peter did it all himself, right down to the chandeliers.

  • Artists'television Access
    Five Things to Know About Artists’ Television Access Artists’ Television Access cultivates the work of creatives who trade in film, photographs, paint, and other mediums. The nonprofit organization has thrived for over three decades, with roots that stretch back to a collection of artists coming together in 1983 to produce work for local television. Here’s more on their creative collective: They still broadcast weekly. Every Sunday at midnight, you can catch about 30 minutes of ATA’s original artist work on cable; you can even mail in your own submissions (though that makes it extra hard to avoid spoilers). ATA also screens in person. Seating about 45, the screening room shows independent films and other media. The screening room doubles as an art gallery. Photos, paintings, and other large-format works hang above the seats. You don’t have to go inside to view art. ATA maintains a display space in its front window. They’re always looking for volunteers. Commit at least four hours a week, and you can come to the shows for free.

  • The Art of DJing
    Operating out of Washburn Studio, DJ Chucky Brown of The Art of DJing trains his students when to rock the party and when to recognize that the party is happening inside a lifeboat. ?You throw bait out,? he says, recognizing that different crowds, such as indie dance rock and Top 40 audiences, require different tunes. ?If you start with Azari and nothing happens, throw out some Datarock or LCD Soundsystem; or if you start with Daft Punk, then throw out some Usher, Calvin Harris, or Madonna.? Brown imparts this encyclopedic knowledge of music in private, small-group, and large-scale classes, where his charges learn how to mix, scratch, and reinvent on the fly. On Brown?s student mixes page, visitors can listen to mash-ups and mixtapes created by his former pupils. The DJ has even performed for several of the artists sampled by his students and himself, having spun at events thrown by Elton John, Missy Elliot, and Justin Timberlake.
