  • The Faux School
    Ron Layman's decorative indoor-painting instruction harks back to thousands of years of artisans' decorative and faux-finishing techniques. Drawing from the colorful traditions of neoclassical plaster finishes and trompe l’oeil techniques, his methods build on the past while incorporating modern styles of glazing and color washing. His commissioned work can be seen in private homes and commercial locales, and when he's not imbuing work and living spaces with his talents, Ron teaches multiple-day workshops in The Faux School studio nestled in Frederick's historical district. Drawing on 20 years of experience as a master painter with the North American Decorative Artist Association and boasting the ability to spell Michelangelo, Ron guides artists of all levels through basic and advanced home-design techniques, incorporating paint, textured finishes, and lime-based Venetian plasters, which add depth to plain walls and floors. Ron also helps his students to explore new approaches to home decoration, with lessons that help students to take control of their environments or take steps toward forming their own home-decorating businesses, regardless of prior artistic experience.

  • Wine and Canvas
    The teachers at Wine and Canvas believe anyone can be artist. In fact, they draw out skills from people who have never even held a paintbrush before. To do this, they guide participants step-by-step through the process of replicating a painting during three-hour classes held at different restaurants and bars throughout the city. To keep each class fresh, they regularly change up the selected masterpieces, which can be anything from the Eiffel Tower at night to an abstract rendering of trees. No matter what and where they teach, though, they always supply students with all the necessary accoutrements, including paints, canvases, aprons, and pronunciation guides for realistic French-accents. The one thing they don't supply is wine, allowing guests to choose for themselves what to drink at the venues' full bars. These nights on the town are for adults only, but they do host kid-friendly cookie and canvas nights for children wanting to discover or flex their artistic chops.

  • Berto Ortega Painting Lessons
    Berto Ortega can't even remember the first time he picked up a pencil or paintbrush. By age 8, he was already a portraitist's apprentice while his peers were still working in the medium of macaroni and glitter. When he got older, Ortega bolstered his natural talents with a formal education at the Swain School of Design and Philadelphia's Studio Incamminati. Today, he teaches oil-and-acrylic techniques to painters of all experience levels. Ortega's own portfolio features portraits and landscapes rendered in a variety of styles: impressionist-inspired lilies, shadowy charcoals, and realist portraits in glowing hues.

  • Winter Park Health & Fitness
    The staff members of Winter Park Health & Fitness have devoted themselves to a simple mission: creating a welcoming space for members to set and achieve fitness goals. In addition to keeping cardio machines and Nautilus strength-training equipment spick-and-span, they're always available to answer questions and help members work out more effectively. Weekday childcare enables parents to stop in for classes that include indoor cycling, three types of yoga, and Pilates. Trainers can also show members how to use the gym's TRX suspension bands to leverage their body weight for workouts during personal-training sessions, which incorporate strength training and metabolic testing that reveals how many calories clients must burn or consume to successfully body-double for Dolph Lundgren.

  • Legacy Fitness Orlando
    The staff at Legacy Fitness never yells, berates, or curses at their patrons during Legacy Fitness boot camps. Instead, they motivate them with a sense of humor and positive encouragement. To keep them engaged and prevent them from suffering workout burnout, they lead them in a new routine every day. This ever-varying approach prevents bodies from adapting to the workouts, so muscles must always work their hardest, burning more calories and building strength more quickly. They conduct the camps at multiple indoor and outdoor locations, drawing from the surroundings to guide the workouts. On any given day, students might flip oversize tires end over end and work as a team to push a car down an empty street or do sprints and heave medicine balls in a gym. These functional workouts help patrons tone their entire bodies more safely and effectively than swimming laps in a quicksand pit.
