    Classic SF Walking Tour

    For the ultimate introduction to San Francisco, we've paired the city's two most timeless and visited areas: Downtown and Chinatown. This tour shows off the best of San Francisco's origin and rise as the Gold Rush metropolis, home to the crazed, the wealthy and the inspirational. Hear how this overnight city began, survived the Great Earthquake of 1906 and saw influence from incredible creators and communities. Your guide, a trained historian, will ensure you're fully entertained along your journey to local landmarks and hidden treasures. You'll learn fun facts, surprising myths, and historic stories about the beautiful City by the Bay from those who make an art out of living here. Get a glimpse of local life by checking out some of your guide's favorite sites, shops and local institutions. You'll also get a 90 minute lunch break between the two neighborhoods, during which you can refer to your mini-guide (one for each 'hood) for dining rec's. Might be a good time for a super-quick shopping spree! But don't be late coming back -- you don't want to miss Chinatown!

As the night progresses, both in terms of your developing technique and the wine you've been consuming, don't be surprised if your painting starts to look pretty good. The next morning though? Who knows. Plus, it's 21 and up, so those awful enfant terribles who are always causing such a ruckus at the galleries won't be allowed in.

    Beginner's Photography

    (1)
    We all know that the best superhero ability would be to be able to stop time. Alas, it's impossible (we're mostly certain of this). Photography isn't the same... but it's the closest thing we've got to it. If you're going to do something, do it well. Come down to the Isla Studio and learn the basics of this incredible artform. Not only will you never miss a memory again, your memories will take on an aesthetically pleasing form... no thumbs in front of the lense, in other words. You know, in the early years of photography, philosopher Walter Benjamin criticized the medium as a debasement of art's "aura". What did he know? Photography rules.
