Students unleash their inner creativity during Wine and Palette's laid-back painting classes. The professional-artist instructors invent projects that reflect their individual style, from bold abstract patterns to misty, atmospheric landscapes. Though all members of a course work on the same basic image, students add individual flourishes to make the image their own. And, since each class meets at a local bar or restaurant, they can also choose to kick back with a drink or snack as they paint.

Featured on Fox 5 and CBS 8, PaintNVineyard's painting classes give students of all skill levels the chance to learn how to paint under the direction of a professional artist in a state-of-the-art, fixed-location studio. Each class focuses on a specific subject that everyone in the class re-creates, such as a Tuscany hillside, a view of outer space, or an implausibility of gnus. The staff equips each workstation with acrylic paints, a tabletop easel and canvas, paintbrushes, and any other needed materials, while patrons bring their own wine, beer or non-alcoholic drinks and snacks. During birthday parties and group outings, the 40-person studio whispers with the sound of brushstrokes and hushed debates about whether Monet knew he was inventing impressionism or was just nearsighted.

Mixology Bartending Academy prepares its pupils to work behind a bar top, teaching them drink recipes and serving etiquette, as well as informing them about alcohol safety and liabilities. Students learn from instructors with as much as 17 years of professional experience in a real bar setting that features glassware, working equipment, and buzzing neon signs.

Far from merely imparting basic bartender knowledge, Mixology aims to boost students' customer-service skills, netting more tips and tears of joy from satisfied customers, and an entire division of the company is focused on helping recent grads find jobs. Plus, after students hone their skills through the one- or two-week courses, they are encouraged to return to the school at any time to practice their craft under the watchful eye of an expert, free of charge.

While the average person spends thousands of hours stuck in traffic during a lifetime, the instructors at Learn To Fly San Diego prefer to rack up that time in the sky. Each member of the certified flight team keeps track of their time off the ground, with numbers ranging between 1,500 and 36,000 hours. As the propellers turn on Cessna and Piper planes, the pilots lead passengers on training flights and sightseeing tours. Students can also work with Learn To Fly San Diego to train for certification in occupations such as commercial pilot, certified flight instructor, and chauffeur for superheroes that can't really fly.

Award-winning artisan and sculptor James Stone draws upon 27 years of craftsmanship and artistry to teach his students the ways of transmogrifying ordinary glass into masterworks. During hands-on demonstrations, James leads groups of up to six pupils in wielding 2,300-degree torches that turn brittle glass into malleable liquid ready to be shaped into art or slathered onto injured windows. Each day, the ovens also churn out tumblers and sculptures available for sale, and the studio routinely takes orders for custom projects and ornaments.
