Nutritionists from the University of Maryland Medical System regularly contribute a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth). The latest post is from clinical nutritionist Christine Dobmeier. More and more establishments in the Baltimore area now offer outdoor seating, so you can dine al fresco and take in the balmy weather along with some good people-watching. Some of the more unusual outdoor dining spots I've spotted around town include the upstairs deck and street-level seating at Speakeasy and the misted outdoor tables at Mama's on the Half Shell, both in Canton.

The arts scene is thriving in Harford County, and this summer there are plenty of ways to enjoy it outside. Dance along the banks of the Susquehanna River while listening to live music in Havre de Grace. Dig out the sketch pad and draw colorful flowers, blooming in Pylesville. Or grab your picnic basket to watch a movie under the stars in Bel Air. “The arts in Harford County in the summer are a wonderful way to enjoy the natural beauty of our county, as well as celebrate the arts,” says Martha Valentine, coordinator of the Harford County Cultural Arts Board.

WITH THE SKILL of a professional artist to guide them, Piney Ridge Elementary pupils created a fresco for display in a school hallway. The fresco contains four panels with images of Maryland history and symbols. "The project gave students an opportunity to see how a professional artist creates a piece of art," said Terry Greenberg, an art teacher at Piney Ridge who initiated the project with artist Michael Hearn through the Arts in Education Program and the school PTA. The program is funded through the Maryland State Arts Council, which promotes the arts and art education in schools.

It's a mild Friday evening in Baltimore. The air is as clear and gleaming as a dry white wine, and as the sun settles into the reddish shadows of twilight, two men on a Little Italy street corner jabber in Italian-accented English. " 'La Vita e Bella!' " cries the first, his hands moving madly. " 'Life is Beautiful.' You know it, no? With Roberto Benigni? So funny, so moving. You must see this film!" The second, an older gent in chef's attire, hasn't had the pleasure yet, but he nods thoughtfully.

Brick by brick, volunteers from Linthicum Heights United Methodist Church took apart their 19th-century chapel, moved it a mile and reconstructed it to save it from ruin. When it was completed in 1966, Holly Run Church -- the first chapel built by the Methodist Protestant Church of America -- was the pride of the northern Anne Arundel County congregation, a replica of the original church. Of particular pride was its frescoed ceiling, painted in painstaking detail by a Baltimore artist.

Baltimore is one city where crowds come out in the heat of the night to take in open-air movies. In mid-July last year, when the thermometer was hitting 95 in the day and stalling in the 80s past midnight, fun-seekers swarmed to Federal Hill to watch (what else?) "Some Like It Hot. " A month later, when it was 89 in the day and 80 throughout the evening, Baltimoreans in search of a Mediterranean getaway turned up in Little Italy for "Nine. " Even when Charm City itself isn't charming, its outdoor summer film festivals are, largely because of their block-party feeling.

What's the best way to fill an open space with smiles for a summer night? Fit in a big, bright movie screen, and hundreds are sure to follow. Every summer, in every corner of Baltimore, the light of the silvery moon turns outdoor silver screens into magnets for fun-seekers. Even a movie presentation expert as exacting as restoration whiz Robert A. Harris ("Lawrence of Arabia") has taken a turn at open-air presentation. "We did it with 'Napoleon.' We sat 5,000 people outside the Colosseum.

On their first day of school, the 28 students at Harford Friends School never saw a desk, textbook, or whiteboard. Instead, the middle school children went to an outdoor learning center, where they spent the day rock climbing, problem-solving, and team building. "We bring our students here to give them a safe environment for taking healthy risks," said Jonathan Huxtable, Harford Friends head of school. "It's neat to watch the eighth-graders step up and take the lead." Since the school's inception four years ago, students have been going to the Genesee Valley Outdoor Learning Center in Parkton on the first day of school.

Wytashe Miller doesn't know the day. Really, the 45-year-old hospital worker can't even recall the month, but this much he does know: At some point this past spring, fluorescent-colored workout machines materialized along the walking path surrounding the reservoir at Druid Hill Park, and he couldn't be happier about it. "One night, they just appeared," said Miller, an Edmondson Village resident. "At least, that's what it seemed like anyway." Others who paused in between exercise sets to talk on a recent midweek's morning about the equipment's arrival shared similar experiences; they had no idea the park would be outfitted with rowing, elliptical, back and leg press machines, but they gladly take advantage of the free workouts.

"Barbara Kassel: Recent Paintings" at the C. Grimaldis Gallery's 523 N.Charles St. space (through June 1) provokes admiration mixed with a nagging sense of unease.For admiration there is much cause. These meticulously achieved paintings display a total mastery of technical means, the use of considerable symbolism, a deep knowledge of art history, a sensitivity to the state of the world.They call up the past from the ruins of classical antiquity to the architecture and painting of the Renaissance, and their grainy surfaces are reminiscent of fresco.

Eating outdoors is one of life's great pleasures. That's why man invented the Weber grill. And that's why so many local restaurants, noticing the tremendous interest in decks and "outdoor kitchens," have created outdoor seating in recent years -- in spite of Baltimore's heat and humidity. At least that's my theory. Whatever the reason, visitors to the Inner Harbor have many more options for open-air dining than they did even a decade ago. Of course, Harborplace practically invented the concept in downtown Baltimore, with almost every restaurant space having seating on a terrace outside and many of them also having an atrium with sides that can be opened up. But that's old news.
