Take a crash course in art and warm weather revelry this weekend at Palm Springs' Ace Hotel. Their annual "Summer School" shindig is half pool party, half craft retreat, offering workshops in quirky skills, such as t-shirt printing, pattern making and collage. Take a dip in the pool while soaking in tunes from a selection of DJs and live bands, curated by KCRW's Chris Douridas and LA's HVW8 Art + Design Gallery. This year's live acts include Phantoms and Jacuzzi Boys, and DJ sets by Douridas, Kodak to Graph and more. Make a weekend of it at the trendy hotel; get 10% off your room with the code TEACHERSPET if you book by Aug. 7.
