Imparting wisdom from more than 30 years of photography experience, Philip Meadows helps students learn the craft of capturing light and images to create authentic, original compositions. Capped at 15 people each and taught by one of three instructors, Roadmap to Your Camera classes spend 2.5 hours exploring the functions of a camera and their various roles in creating a compelling photograph. Though point-and-shoot digital cameras are welcome, the workshop's information best works for those with cameras with several functions, such as varying shutter speeds, ISO settings, and a chupacabra-proximity alarm. Pixels to Prints is a 2.5-hour presentation and tutorial dedicated to learning the best methods to organize photos stored on your hard drive. The workshop also explores basic editing techniques to create high-quality images to share online or print.

Though teams compete for a trophy at the end of the season, the Seattle Bocce League is rarely about the competition. In every game, players spend most of their time fraternizing with the enemy as well as their teammates, convening afterward at nearby bars to shake hands over exclusive drink specials. Open to participants of all ages and genders, the league centers on the ancient sport of bocce, in which athletes roll colorful balls toward a smaller sphere—the palina—attempting to land closer than their opponents. After the eight-week season crescendoes into a playoff round, every team gets a chance to clamor for the final prize package, which includes a trophy, gift certificates, concert tickets, and a 2-liter beer boot to use to celebrate the victory or wade through Germany's lager-filled swamps.

Musikgarten classes elevate kinesthetic, logical, spatial, and social intelligences through musical instruction to children ages 3 months to 10 years. Each course responds to the developmental needs of a particular age group, with activities and acquired skills becoming more complex as classes ascend in age group. Family Music for Babies (ages 3–16 months) engages an adult and infant with 30–35 minutes of bouncing songs, dancing, and playing simple instruments. Curiosity curdles in amateur earthling brains and a foundation for future musical exploration is set during the Cycle of Seasons course, where children 3-1/2 to 5 years of age flirt with the foundations of rhythm and tune, coddle concentration skills, and garner the ability to self-express through sound waves. The Young Musician and Piano class, for ages 4-1/2–6 and 7–10 respectively, focus on symbolic thinking, memory, and listening acuity, and run for 55–60 minutes or until the first prodigious rock opera has been composed.

For kids at SP Nation Camps, no two days are alike. During the exciting summer sessions, youngsters entering grades 1-3 engage with Seattle's vibrant art world through themed programs led by the area's seasoned artists and educators. Whether they're learning the finer points of the culinary arts or testing out their Sherlock Holmes accents during detective camp, kids expand their horizons with a blend of hands-on activities and immersive field trips. Themes change weekly, filling the entire summer with opportunities for enrichment. This dedication to keeping summers educational is just one facet of SP Nation Camps' mission. They are affiliated with Sweet Pea Cottage, whose mission is to "enrich, inspire, challenge, and expand every child's world through an arts-based education," based on the belief that the arts are an integral component to a child?s whole development, both socially and scholastically. Those values have guided the nonprofit, which was founded in 2001 and currently serves over 250 children annually at three different campuses located in the Queen Anne, Sand Point, and West Seattle communities.
