Picasso's Corner's imaginative artists offer step-by-step instruction to guide students of all skill levels as they craft 16"x20" paintings. Classes, running either two hours Tuesday-Wednesday or three hours Thursday-Saturday, are scheduled at 7 p.m. and include all necessary materials such as acrylic paint, brushes, high-powered paintball guns, easels, aprons, and canvases. At the studio only, patrons may use provided bottle openers and cups during class to enjoy self-supplied beer, wine, and snacks. The studio's three-hour open-studio sessions offer a more independent painting session devoid of step-by-step instruction and performance-enhancing hugs.
The specialists at Eat My Art construct elaborate, edible sculptures from natural ingredients and impart their baking alchemy during classes and workshops. With careful measurements and precise amounts of flour, sugar, and eggs, the baking team arranges multidimensional cakes in the shapes of hot rods, handbags, corsets, and boxing gloves. During child or adult baking classes, the staff supplies all the baking utensils and ingredients necessary to create cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and miniature pies. The classes reveal fine baking and decorating techniques such as piping with buttercream, sculpting with fondant, and baking a file-shaped cake to successfully escape gingerbread prisons.

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We mix fun with actual learning. Our students not only have a lifelong passion, but they also can play well. Also, webelieve in personalizing methods to each student. No two people are the same and we know that. Every student does learn the same things but in ways each can comprehend.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Lessons are done in their homes. The need to have the instrument they are taking. (Parents can talk to us if they haven't purchased/rented one yet.) Any other materials (i.e. books) are purchased by the teacher & are brought to the lesson. Parents must reimburse for materials at said lesson.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We have had the excellent pleasure of having some of the most amazing teachers for our instruments. We wouldn't be professionals in our field without their guidance. We believe in doing the same for the next generation. Also, we just love seeing others as excited about music as we are. :-)
What do you love most about your job?
The recitals, the excitement from the students and parents when they've crossed a hurdle and accomplished a piece, and hearing through the grapevine how much our students love their lessons. We have a job that doesn't feel like a job and we are making a difference in someone else's life.
