Arranged on stacks of wall-mounted shelves, untouched pieces of pottery wait for artists to apply creative expressions with paint. At two locations that will be celebrating 16 years in business this year, resident artists daub dishes, vases, and character figurines with colorings and patterns. Parents seeking keepsakes can complete a ?precious impressions? project, where they mold and paint a clay imprint of their child?s hands or feet. Other projects feature fused-glass jewelry and dishes, and intricately tiled mosaics.
In bar classrooms outfitted with real equipment and experienced instructors, the students at Professional Bartenders School learn to mix, pour, and serve their way into the barkeeping industry. Courses ranging from six hours to two weeks instill pupils with the tenets of professional drinksmanship, such as free pouring, drink recipes, and customer service. Students fill glasses with spurts from soda guns, simulated liquor from real bottles, and garnishes carved from organic plastic lemons as they learn drink recipes and mixing techniques. Upon certification, newly minted bartenders receive lifetime job-placement help, with access to a database of hospitality employers.

Commanded by a retired Navy fighter pilot and commercial captain with more than 25,000 hours of flying experience, Grey Eagle Aviation's team of certified flight instructors guides students skyward via flights that range from first-time cruises to professional training missions. Students receive their instruction at [McClellan/Palomar Airport])(http://gr.pn/Mkma8u), a tower-controlled airfield that makes a great training environment due to its facilities, sunny weather, and ban on toy planes. Before placing them behind the steering column of a Cessna 152 or 172, instructors teach burgeoning pilots through ground studies in computerized classrooms with modern aids and training materials.
Founded in 1974, Golf Academy of America makes its impact on professional golf by helping instructors earn degrees in golf-course management and jump-starting amateur golf careers. The academy's staff of PGA Professional instructors develops proper form in students whether the student's ultimate goal is an academic degree or lower scores in a casual round. Private lessons at the indoor facility focus on the individual aspects of a golfer's game that need improvement. Focused attention helps the student produce straighter drives, more holed putts, and better approaches from roughs or the even-tougher-to-navigate oil slicks.
When Skyline Flight Training's fleet of Piper, Seneca, and Cessna aircraft lift off from the airstrip at Palomar Airport, they transform from airplanes into aerial classrooms for aviators-in-training. As students log hours in pursuit of a private or commercial pilot's license, the outfit's instructors keep a watchful eye to make sure they demonstrate safe techniques such as checking instruments and never sneaking up on a storm cloud. In addition to its lineup of advanced training regimens, Skyline invites less ardent aviators to try out its introductory lessons, which impart basic flying knowledge through both ground school and hands-on flying experience.
