What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I am a singer that is currently performing. I know the situations of the modern industry and continue to educate myself through workshops, vocal coaching, voice lessons, and masterclasses. I am versed in classical singing, but have also worked extensively with singers of various levels.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
I provide all music. However if there is a specific song you want to work on, please bring it to the lesson. Also bring a bottle of water, a pencil, and a willingness to learn new things!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I am a singer and I think the greatest gift I can give is to give my artistic knowledge to others.
What do you love most about your job?
Watching people grow.
At Corks and Canvases, local artists demonstrate how to paint vivid scenes while students sip their favorite wines. After passing out canvases and supplies, teachers guides attendees aged 15 and older stroke-by-stroke through the process of creating projects such as a Van Gogh–inspired starry night over Pittsburgh or a sailboat as it floats at sunset. At BYOB classes, they invite guests to uncork a vintage and nibble snacks brought from home. The studio also hosts bachelor or bachelorette parties, fundraising events, and family nights that let kids and their smartest stuffed animals paint alongside adults.
Colors & Bottles' founder Jessica Burley and her band of talented local artists are dedicated to supporting local emerging talent and businesses through art instruction held at nearby venues. Their resident artists travel to local eateries and art galleries, where they teach students of all skill levels to fashion dimensional masterpieces through step-by-step instruction. They also kindle creativity during private parties held at the location of your choice, asking only that the destination be outfitted with enough tables, chairs, and paint-by-numbers templates of the Sistine Chapel ceiling for all invitees. Colors & Bottles has received a nod for their engagingly creative events on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and within the pages of the Columbus Dispatch.
