“There’s something for everybody here and if there isn’t, we’ll make it.”
With Lisa Little's approach to DIY art, as she tells Middletown Journal, no one gets left out at one of her pottery-painting parties. Visitors to The Splattered Platter are treated to Lisa's diverse ceramic collection, which includes more than 500 decorative and functional pieces—including bowls, plates, and figurines—with each matte-white porcelain surface awaiting decoration.
The decorating tools are all-inclusive as well. Crayons accommodate younger hands, and paintbrushes on canvases suit the finer motor skills of older artists. These seasoned crafters can also drop in for Lisa's in-depth project classes, which tackle trickier subjects, such as topping a wrought-iron table in mosaic or knitting leg warmers for a millipede.

"Tae kwon do" loosely translates to "the way of the foot and the fist." At Ultimate Leadership Martial Arts & TaeKwonDo, you'll learn how to use both appendages with precision and power. The instructors there specialize in teaching tae kwon do for all ages, starting as young as preschool. The Korean practice is a mixed martial art by nature, since it incorporates both the linear moves of karate and circular sweeps of kung fu. Teachers focus on the basics, such as balance and coordination at Lil Dragons for children and work on more advanced moves at teen and adult classes.

Joshua Baxter was born to move. As a child he was so entrenched in his family's auction business that when Joshua was 16, his father pulled him aside and told him it was time to take an active role. So, Joshua took his driver's test in the truck the family used to pick up merchandise, and at 19 he bought his own truck, handling the transportation of the often-valuable antiques. That skill and preternatural understanding of merchandise transportation led to the birth of Here To There Movers. Now, Joshua has trucks headquartered in five Midwest cities.
Here To There Movers' technicians know that the transport of belongings from one abode to another is one of life's most stressful affairs, even more than interviewing for a position at the local bomb diffusery. The licensed and insured staff can arrive at a moment's notice, equipped to handle bookshelves, boxes, and pianos. Here To There provides a frequently asked questions page and moving tips for the befuddled house-swapper or recreational vagrant.
The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and Van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.
