After purchasing his first DSLR camera, Gary Detonnancourt made the common mistake of investing in expensive equipment before learning to use what he already had. Eventually realizing that his gear was only as good as his understanding of it, he became a self-made expert in the art of digital photography. He went on to become president of the Northern Rhode Island Camera Club, and he now draws on years spent as a science teacher to explain to students how light works and why shining a laser pointer on something is hilarious. That same experience has caused him to apply a hands-on philosophy in workshops and online programs as well as lessons in studio photography, fine-art printing, and Photoshop. The shutterbug also appears at weddings to capture special-day grins, and portraits of young children beg for space in photo albums next to teddy bear–hunting licenses.

Amidst cocktails and noshing, 35 to 40 students of all skill sets recreate classic works of art within hours at Drink and Dabble under the tutelage of comedian and RISD graduate Charlie Hall or his similarly talented staff members. They supply classes with artistic gear including a blank 16" x 20" stretched canvas, water-based acrylics, and aprons. After the instructor selects the evening’s canvas from Charlie's own collection or sometimes from famous artists such as Vincent van Gogh and his “The Starry Night", they guide the class through every layer step-by-step, circling the room to dispense individual tips. During short breaks, the teacher and their students eat, drink, and make merry along to a soundtrack of party tunes. By class’ end, the acrylics dry into a new version of a priceless canvas that you can take home.
During dance lessons as a child, Jean DeLuca took notes. While most students just memorized the choreography, DeLuca also memorized the style of her instructors. She noticed their teaching methods stayed the same no matter who they interacted with. DeLuca takes a different approach at her studio, Jean DeLuca Dance Studio. She and her staff believe that everyone learns a different way, so they take the time to get to know each student in order to make their lessons both effective and fun. Children as young as 2 years old learn dance steps in beginning ballet and tap classes, and older students educate their feet in combination classes that cover jazz, hip-hop, and other disciplines.
