Since 1995, the friendly and artistic team members at The Painting Workshop have spiked patrons’ creative juices with quality materials, inspirational subject matter, and a generous splash of encouragement. Enroll one or two pre-adolescent postmodernists (ages 5–10) in the Painting on Canvas workshop, then enjoy some wasabi peas and quiet as the youngsters make paint fly based on their imaginations or a studio-provided still life, an ideal tool for those looking to hone their color-matching and snack-resisting abilities. The workshop also welcomes groups of adults. The Art & Pizza workshop begins with projects spanning the realms of crafts, painting, and sculpting dough into fully functional grandfather clocks. Next, pizza presents itself to kids, who can stare cross-eyed at the sauce palettes in hopes of finding hidden pepperoni messages. The Painting Workshop provides all materials and requires no fine- or coarse-arts prerequisites for enrollment. Check the schedule for an idea of upcoming class times.
J.E.K. Painting founder and third-generation craftsman Jim Kerr assembled his licensed and insured team without the use of subcontractors and with classic workmanship as its primary objective. In addition to cloaking interior and exterior walls and trim in swaths of color, Kerr and his team provide a sprawling assortment of handyman services. This includes applying and removing wallpaper, power-washing decks, and calling upon Kerr's EPA certification in the renovation of homes containing lead. Color consultations help homeowners to determine what hue will best match Dad's favorite corduroy slacks, and a selection of eco-friendly, water-based paint imparts a new look with less odor and fewer VOCs than traditional paint.
Mr. Powerwash’s licensed and insured team restores homes and commercials properties by blasting away mold and grime and refinishing exteriors with sealant and painting services. The crew carefully adjusts the pressure of its power-washing equipment to clean decks and play sets without washing the neighbor’s second-story housecat. Once the technicians scour wooden patios and fences, they brush on staining varnish to protect and prolong the life of all wooden surfaces. Never subcontracted, Mr. Powerwash’s painters coat homes and businesses in fresh pigment, and protect garage floors with epoxy paints. They can even tackle projects as large as parking garages or as small as the removal of graffiti from an Easter egg.
Understanding that power washing can help customers as well as the surrounding community, the team enacted and continues to participate in Clean Across Harford County, a program that calls for free power washing of local eyesores. Additionally, for every $199 wash they execute, they donate $10 to Operation Smile, a program dedicated to helping children in third-world countries with cleft lips.

With 30 years spent as general contractor, there’s little that Andre Cannon hasn’t seen. He and his crack team of handymen can tackle all manner of home-refurbishment projects, ranging from interior painting and carpentry to drywall repair and installation.
