Once a costumer for TV shows including House and Weeds, Tami Macala switched careers midstream when she discovered the art of creating mosaics, according to a Santa Barbara Sentinel profile. She started mosaicking everything from fireplaces to fountains to other, lesser mosaics, eventually landing high-profile projects at the Florida Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Arby?s restaurants.

After more than a decade of working as a professional mosaic artist, Tami opened the Santa Barbara School of Mosaic Art (SBSMA). At the school, Tami and guest artists from near and far teach how to trick out tables with colorful shingles, coax gently luminous Mexican smalti into intricate patterns, or fuse glass for even more complex designs. Students can pick up tools and tiles at the SBSMA supply store and drop by during lab hours to work on independent projects.

Raptors of Rock, Hollywood Crisis, and Trip Aces might not be household names yet, but they?re rising stars in Santa Barbara. That?s thanks to Santa Barbara Youth Music Academy, which specializes in helping talented, dedicated young musicians form their own rock bands and ensembles. Under the guidance of expert musicians and instructors, groups spend time rehearsing tunes, refining their collective playing skills, and developing pithy responses to journalists? questions. The academy likewise encourages students to hone their individual talents during weekly private lessons in instruments such as guitar, drums, and voice. Once the band starts gelling, SBYMA schedules gigs at various venues, including multi-band showcases. For budding musicians interested in a less intensive commitment, the academy also hosts six-week sessions and summer programs.

At Blue Pacific Boating, professional skippers boldly lead novice sailors across choppy waters in pursuit of sailing expertise. The two-hour introductory lesson, which is held aboard one of Blue Pacific’s new, midsize yachts, gives mildly salted sea dogs a hands-on introduction to the basics of sailing, including essential maneuvering techniques and the secret to keeping the wind out of your sails. Mounting the waves from the school’s Oxnard port, the captain and a crew of up to five will tour Channel Islands Beach, playing bumper boat with other vessels along the way and absorbing views of cavorting dolphins and roaring sea lions. Courses will be offered weekly, alternating between Sundays and Wednesdays.
