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.

In business for 22 years, Cook's World Cooking School infuses aspiring epicureans with cooking expertise in an appetizing assortment of hands-on classes. During each one-night class, a rotating cast of skilled and professionally-trained local chefs guide students through the basics of a specific type of cuisine, cooking skill, or saucepan percussion technique. Go Italian in a doughy pizza-making and throwing class, create sophisticated small plates of flavor-packed treats in the spanish tapas course, or slather on new skills in a barbecue class, in which students learn to tame the wild elemental forces of fire, smoke, and tangy sauce.

Classes run for three hours each with 15 or fewer students, ensuring ample time for participation and one-on-one guidance. All class sessions are held in Cook's World's well-equipped culinary studio, which houses a cornucopia of professional cooking equipment and a carpet woven from retired chefs’ hats.

In the years that it took him to achieve the national master title, Elliott Neff learned that chess is more than just a game. He found that math competency, critical thinking, spatial reasoning, and other essential skills are honed as one plays. So, when he sits down to give one of his students a lesson, he thinks of it not as a diversion but, as his company's motto puts it, as "teaching life skills through chess." To help him expand the reach of his philosophy, Elliott has assembled a team of more than 35 local and national chess champions. During group classes and private lessons, these coaches motivate students to exercise their mental agility while learning the correct way to outsmart kings.

The summer may be ending, but it's not too late to step the mast, rig the sail, and head out on the open water of Lake Washington. This Groupon gets you an adult unlimited sailing pass for the rest of the year to Sail Sand Point, located along the western shore of Lake Washington just five miles north of the University of Washington. A membership gets you and up to three friends out on the water with access to Sail Sand's range of boats. The adult pass is normally $175 for the whole summer, whether you buy it in May or September (though they do offer an early bird special of $150 if you purchase before April 1). With this Groupon, just $50 will get you in on the action for the rest of the 2009 sailing season. Note: Sail Sand Point closes on October 15—that's two months of sailing and access to Sail Sand Point boats.
