Supplying all materials, Art By The Glazz's artist-led painting sessions kindle brush-wielding talents during three-hour classes held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. New artists capture shapes and shadows inspired by a number of pastoral- or wine-themed templates, with step-by-step instruction from pigment professionals. One complimentary glass of wine emboldens the pigment-shy, and those with a thirst for more can visit an onsite cash bar. Aprons protect against stray paint, wine drops, and the tears of fruit trapped in a beautiful but airless eternal present, although Art By The Glazz recommends wearing old clothes. Finished masterpieces chaperone each artist home, ready to be mounted on a wall or hung from the dining-room chandelier.
During Cookies and Milk sessions, kids or teens settle down with a complimentary dessert amid canvases ripe for realizing 2-D tableaux. During each session, one featured painting of a subject, such as the beach, Green Eggs and Ham, or Mickey Mouse, is perched mid-studio to kindle students’ imaginary fires. The company also hosts corporate team-building events, small groups, and birthday parties, giving guests an enjoyable ice-breaking activity.
In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.
Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs, and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
The chefs of Mardi Gras Fine Foods reach for pure olive oil and MSG-free recipes to create their Mediterranean-, Cajun-, and German-style deli foods. Freshly made main dishes, such as beef brisket and hot-pepper-jelly tortas, sit in a refrigerated deli case, ready to be packaged up and taken home. Meanwhile, bakers whip up brownies, scones, and muffins, and stack platters high with mini-croissant sandwiches and paninis.
Bent on accommodating guests' desires, the courteous staff also takes special orders to meet specific dietary needs. In addition, custom-designed catering menus feed parties from 5 to 500 atop white table linens or the backs of volunteer ghosts.
Upon first glance, Eutopia Beauty Studio appears a classic, modern salon, thanks to its earth-toned walls, spacious leather sofa facing a flat-screen TV, and shelves lined with products by Milk_shake, No Inhibitions, Keratin Complex, Malibu, and Brocato. However, the styling area brings a hint of Old World class to the modern space. Cherry-wood cabinets outfitted with clean marble countertops and elegant metal hardware jut from a rustic brick wall. Here, stylists twirl around black, boxy styling chairs as they ribbon hair with highlights and snip off split ends. They treat parched strands to deep moisturizing treatments, and retexturize locks with relaxers, permanent waves, and keratin smoothing systems. Once hair is done, makeup artists take over and gussy up features with false lashes and full makeup applications.
The Coloring Room unearths inner artistes with a host of pottery painting events for both adults and kids. The cheerful studio is a great place to get friends together for a small ceramics gathering, ceramics rave, or first ceramics date rave. At BYOB pottery-painting gatherings, guests provide their own libations, and The Coloring Room supplies the paint, tools, and clay canvases, providing Groupon holders with their choice of any unfinished ceramic piece valued at up to $15. If you don't know how to paint, or only know how to paint the Venus of Urbino on a divan made of butter, the friendly staff can help you draw a stegosaurus or emblazon a mug with a well thought-out poem that faithfully represents your feelings about Monday. A color chart assists in the palette-constructing process, and unlimited use of paint, supplies, and instruction grants free rein for burgeoning Rembrandts to compose their earthenware masterpieces.
