As cool wind blows over rubber-marked pavement, the friendly, Motorcycle Safety Foundation–certified instructors at Bluecreek Motorcycle Training Co. shout instructions over the clamor of engines revved by student riders. The academy’s fully enclosed riding range encourages beginners and experts alike to safely practice skills, such as stopping, turning, and swerving—all with the help of the seven men and three women who make up the teaching staff. Courses also incorporate study time in spacious, air-conditioned classrooms, where students commit laws and road signs to memory instead of sticking post-it notes on the inside of their helmet visors.

Focused on community-building and self-expression, Working With Artists bestows dedicated, skilled photographic instruction upon fledgling shutterbugs during digital-photography workshops, instilling pertinent picture-taking knowledge alongside burgeoning technological prowess. Classes of 50 or fewer students learn the ins and outs of their digital portrait boxes, learning how to zoom with aplomb and adjust settings to create flattering outdoor photos or achieve a spooky flashlight-held-under-the-chin effect. Tote along your own camera for in-depth tutorials on camera function while developing practical skills and increasing creativity during the six-hour session, taking a quick break to eat a snack or build a tripod out of snack wrappers.

At the tender age of 6, Mark Cafiero received his first camera. Though it was broken and filled with cartoons his father had drawn of Mark and his sisters, that camera sparked an early interest in photography. Since then, that spark has erupted into a full-fledged passion, leading Mark to become a professional photographer who has snapped photos for hundreds of clients, including celebrities and professional athletes. To share his spark with others, Mark founded Chimpsy, an resource that helps photographers of all experience levels calibrate their skills with casual in-person and online classes.

Available in more than 30 cities across the nation, Chimpsy's two-hour crash course features a hands-on shooting session and campfire-style presentation on topics ranging from camera anatomy to photo composition. For home study, online classes help photographers—beginners and aspiring pros alike—get more from their pictures through two-hour video tutorials that cover photo-editing software, shooting tips and techniques, and steps on how to build a photography business. From the comfort of their bedrooms, students can watch these professional photographer-led tutorials live or replay previously recorded sessions. Along with instructional classes, Chimpsy offers shutterbugs a place to submit photos for contests with monthly prizes or for feedback from peers, pros, and sentient picture frames.

John Hand had a theory: for any problem a person might have, someone in their local community has a solution. To that end, he founded Colorado Free University, continuing a tradition that began with the Denver Free University of the 1970s and early '80s. Whereas the Denver Free University was created as a political move to make education more accessible, the Colorado incarnation sets its sights on simple personal betterment, becoming more of a learning network than a school. All of its teachers are independent contractors culled from the local community, and together they helm skill-based and enrichment classes for adults, spanning a range of artistic, humanitarian, and business disciplines.

Students can receive training in foreign languages or ASL, business or digital marketing, or acting, visual arts, or woodworking. The school's facilities also accommodate CompuSkills computer-training classes, which progress from basic sessions in computer operation to advanced sessions in photoshopping a ghost out of a family portrait. There are cooking classes, foreign language courses, and style classes, all of which turn out well-rounded pupils. The campus's 89-seat John Hand Theater, meanwhile, hosts intimate performances from local Firehouse Theater Company and Spotlight Theatre Company.
