Kids' art classes, which are suited to students between the ages of 5 and 12, show youngsters how to use charcoal and pastels to create basic shapes with three-dimensional effects. Instructors also introduce watercolors to explain the relationships between primary, secondary, and complementary colors. The programs for teens and adults begin by teaching attendees how to create confident sketches before showing them how to create life-like forms with depth, form, and perspective.

Mission: Renaissance

The meaning of art may be subjective, but Mission: Renaissance believes that the basic, technical skills needed to create art are learnable, regardless of a student’s age or experience. The instructors at the studio, which was originally founded in 1975, illuminate the Gluck Method, which focuses on the classic rendering techniques that the great masters used on their first computers. The classes can accommodate students as young as 5, and they explore a number of different mediums—including charcoal, watercolors, and oils—while giving attendees the experience they need to appreciate art, as well as create it. Spread across 19 studio locations in southern California, attendance is capped at around six students per instructor, which allows them to offer artists more personalized feedback and more fitting nicknames.
