Mankind was never meant to breathe underwater, but the instructors at Columbia Scuba defy such limitations, helping students of all sorts—from small children to disabled adults—explore the forbidden depths. As young as 8, kids can start training with PADI Bubblemaker classes, using equipment suited to their smaller size, and swimmers of all ages can join Discover Scuba sessions to learn the basics of diving in the safety of a pool. For students looking to become certified divers, open-water diving and specialty diving courses test practical skills in unique environments, such as submerged shipwrecks filled with sunken coupons, whereas trips to the Florida springs or Cozumel convey the majestic experience of communing up close with marine wildlife.

Certified professional photographer Gene Taylor has fine-tuned his artistic vision while working in photojournalism and portrait photography for more than 30 years. During classes at Your Photo Safari, Gene introduces students to the photographic arts and the workings of DSLR cameras. Sessions begin in classroom settings, allowing students to get acquainted with camera basics as well as advanced features such as setting white balance and reducing blur. After learning how to navigate the multiple settings and buttons on their digital cameras, students traipse to area gardens to explore the natural world through their lenses. The hands-on experience allows students to take home artfully composed shots of plants bathed in natural light or trees planking over riverbanks in a bid for Internet fame.

Wella Professionals School pampers heads with eye-catching coifs administered by student stylists who work under the supervision of licensed instructors. In the impressively large and open space, guests can choose their preferred treatment from the style menu, such as an invigorating shampoo and blow-dry for an instant makeover ideal for job interviews or before interviewing potential dates in a bleakly lit warehouse ($10). Student scissor wizards snip unruly locks into sleekly styled cranial carpets, and a licensed instructor calmly offers professional advice ($10). For a revamped color scheme or to mask the aftermath of late-night leopard-spot hair tattoos, guests can choose to douse tresses in a single process color ($25–$35) or sprinkle light-catching strands among already luminous follicles with partial high or low lights ($25).

SnapClasses.com's photography professionals impart fledgling photogs with digital picture-taking knowledge during the four-hour workshop. The class is divided into three parts—digital basics, taking better pictures, and what to do after the shoot—to cover all aspects of digital photography. Each camera crusader will learn shutter-snapping fundamentals, such as how to understand camera functions, how to manipulate settings to obtain desired effects, and how to react when your camera asks you to focus. Students will also study backgrounds, foregrounds, and how to get up-close and personal without agitating touchy subjects. Before class ends, amateur paparazzi will become adept at eliminating pesky instances of red-eye and learn how to print perfectly captured pictures of cabbage heads that resemble Pete Rose.
