New businesses specialize in imbibing while painting; family photography

Children and newborn photographer Anastasia Sperry has set up shop on Broadway, and will hold a grand opening event from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday. The photography studio is located at 489 Broadway in an upstairs suite. The event this weekend will have a Mad Hatter tea party theme.
Sperry, who used to be a teacher, has always been passionate about photography and has been working as an on-location photographer for several years now, and the studio will allow her to have a base where she can meet with clients.
Sperry signed the lease in November, and spent the winter months getting the studio ready. Here's her website for more information: http://www.anastasiasperryphotography.com/

I also met today with Catherine Hover, who is opening Saratoga Paint & Sip Studio on Henry Street. Hover's studio pairs wine and beer drinking with a painting class led by a local artist, for birthday parties, girls' nights and first dates.
Hover has lived in various metropolises, most recently New Orleans, before moving here with her husband last year. She's heard of other studios popping up and thought the Spa City would be a good location for one with its vibrant downtown and arts scene.
The first adult class will be held on April 26, where class members can recreate Van Gogh's Starry Night. Registration and payment can both be done on the calendar on the studio's website, by clicking on the date or painting you want to try.
There will be children's painting classes held at the studio starting this weekend, but there's no word on what they'll drink in place of wine...

Cheers!
