  • Premier Flight Academy
    The lesson begins on the ground with a pre-flight briefing, after which air students will strap into the cockpits of Premier Flight's airplanes, such as the Garmin 430 GPS, for a 30- to 45-minute ride through the skies. These safe, sturdy workhorses of the clouds feature a large canopy design that provides excellent, beginner-friendly stability and unobstructed, beautiful views of Ohio and the giant fireball that hovers over Australia. Premier Flight?s helpful skysperienced instructors will keep the plane in firm control as you learn to navigate the skies, before landing for a post-flight recap and roundtable discussion on the narrative arc of X-Men. Though you won't be certified to fly alone after this lesson, you'll be on your way to going solo. Call to schedule your lesson.

  • KidzArt Akron Art & Drama Summer Camp
    KidzArt is an art program that aims to help children and communities develop creativity and confidence while art-education programs are being scissored from school budgets across the country. The five-day art and drama summer camp, which is led by instructors who have completed a rigorous training program, brings kids together for creativity-expanding exercises including drawing, painting, acting exercises, and set-design projects. KidzArt Akron provides all artist-grade materials (Prismacolor double-sided markers, Prismacolor watercolor pencils, Sculpey clay, etc.) and pre-approved snacks. To show off each student's progress after the week of workshopping, there is a gallery showing of artwork and a performance of a short student-written play. Call ahead to reserve your child's spot in camp before Friday, August 13; purchase two Groupons to send your young one with a friend or sibling.

  • Oliver Arts Education Services
    Dustin Oliver has served as the choir and drama director at Akron North High School and the fine-arts director at Celebration Church, so he knows a thing or two about putting on a performance. Add to that nearly 15 years practicing the guitar, nearly 20 years honing his piano and voice skills, and at least a few minutes humming the theme to M.A.S.H., and it becomes obvious that this artist is a multi-talented whiz. An accomplished musician and composer with a Bachelor’s degree in music from Southeastern University, Dustin is earning his Master’s in theatre from the University of Akron, making him a veritable double threat and a valuable resource for aspiring musicians and actors. When not adding to his own skill set, he leads private and group music lessons in guitar, piano, bass, and voice for students ages 5 and older—as well as private and group acting lessions—following well-established curricula.
