  • The ClayGround Studio & Gallery
    While other children were playing outside Charlene Randolph's bedroom window, she was buried in her coloring books, scribbling intently with her crayons. This passion for two-dimensional art led her to take a slew of illustration classes in high school, but it wasn't until college that she discovered the clay medium and the world of functional, three-dimensional art. Tossing her canvases and drawing pencils to the side, Charlene became the primary instructor at The ClayGround Studio & Gallery, a BYOB workshop that provides novice potters with all the tools, materials, and fire-breathing abilities needed to craft stoneware art. Charlene's own masterpieces are available for purchase through the studio's website or at various boutiques and galleries across the country.

  • Quest Fitness Baltimore
    Across the 20,000-square-foot expanse of Quest Fitness's workout space, personal trainers bark encouragement over the clanking and whirring of Hammer Strength and Cybex machines. Neon signs reading Cardio Fitness or Circuit Training glow white, red, and purple over their dedicated stations. Everything about the gym is designed to exude an air of hospitality. Full-wall murals of rolling countryside surround the cycling room, their more cartoonish cousins adding color and interest to the Kidzone daycare center. A women's-only fitness area lends privacy, and members can kick back in one of the steamy saunas or constantly tended tanning beds.

  • Pinot's Palette - Ellicott City
    Pinot's Palette is less an art studio than it is a way for people to enjoy a libation-filled night out with friends, one that happens to include a painting project. The painting sessions evoke adults' inner artists whether they have any painting experience or not, encouraging conversation and good cheer while painting and sipping. Some locations feature a BYOB policy while others serve beer and wine from the bar. Each session features a predetermined painting?from flowers and animals to known classics such as Van Gogh's Starry Night?which each participant tackles from their own artistic angle under the guidance of an experienced instructor.

  • Paint In The Hut
    Paintbrushes smooth color across a series of canvases, and wineglasses glint in the evening light. At Paint in the Hut, amateur artists bring snacks and libations and relax during evenings filled with art. Painting sessions encourage adults to splash their emotions on the canvas as they re-create famous works of art, such as Monet's Cliffs and Water Lilies. Instructors are on hand to help you capture that ray of sunshine or the right perspective for the sea monster hiding behind the cliffs.

  • Jeanette Warne Catering
    Influenced by her upbringing in Sierra Leone—where the food culture emphasizes local, artisanal ingredients shared by neighbors—Jeanette Warne guides small groups of adults, teens, and kids in themed cooking classes geared toward age group. In how to-style classes, budding chefs learn such fundamentals as how to cook with wine, how to prepare classic French dishes, or how to tell the difference between a baguette and a baseball bat. The class lineup also covers specializations, such as pastry-chef techniques and cooking for specific dietary needs. Courses typically yield 3–4 dishes. Warne also lends her expertise to party planners by catering international-themed feasts that feature passed hors d'oeuvres, Mediterranean dinners, and eclectic four-course buffets. The company maintains environmentalist practices, not only through sourcing ingredients locally, but also by buying biodegradable flatware and minimizing the use of single-use paper airplanes that carry food to diners' plates.
