The philosophy at Blank Canvas is that anyone can be an artist with the right materials and a little encouragement. To prove this philosophy, the studio hosts weekly sessions where artists of all experience levels come together to create their own works of art based on an existing painting. Likewise, Blank Canvas encourages kids as young as pre-kindergarten and up to high-school age to follow their artistic impulses by attending classes and camps instead of drawing on the walls or painting the kitchen the wrong shade of mauve.

With more than 30 years of kid-entertaining experience, The Little Gym provides a safe and noncompetitive environment wherein wee ones can exercise their brains and bodies. Maturing moppets aged 4 months to 3 years glean social and cognitive skills from a parent-child program that helps developing minds learn colors and numbers and helps parents learn to take turns and share. Gymnastics allows energized preschoolers to tumble at their own pace and caters to differing ages, levels of muscle development, and hatred of vegetables. Grade-school gymnasts tackle the mat, bar, vault, and beam in classes set to their ability, not age. Dance and cheerleading classes allow the rhythmically inclined to shake and sway and the vocally enthused to yell things other than other people's Social Security numbers.

The Valley Beer Festival titillates taste buds with fermented libations from more than 15 local and international breweries. Guests can tickle their tummies with sips of yanjing beer from China, Holy Grail ale from Britain, and xingu black beer from Brazil. The sweet, full-bodied tastes of a hefeweizen and the light flavoring of a pilsner tiptoe across the tongue like a teenager sneaking in after curfew tiptoes across the bouncy castle in the living room. Guests can enjoy their free tastings as live music swirls through the open air. The 2011 Valley Beer Festival benefits both the Harold Robinson Foundation, an organization that organizes a free summer camp for underprivileged youths, and the Alliance for the Arts, which transports disadvantaged students to local art performances and cultural events.
