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.

What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?
Our kid-friendly staff provides wooden engines for our museum visitors to borrow while they play and learn at the Museum. Located in beautiful Griffith Park, the Museum is a great escape where the kids can play, the parents can relax, and admission is free.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
Watching the Museum visitors pretend and play on the painted railroad track in front of our store.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our store is run by the 501(c)(3) non-profit group which provides tours for school groups during the week, restores and operates the big trains on the weekends, and provides a service-learning program for high school students and other adults who give tours on the weekends. We are part of the Presidential Service Awards—and our volunteers provided over 6,000 individuals tours last year.

A guitarist for more than 25 years, Craig Rogers has spent his life rocking out in bands and composing music for programs on networks including ABC, HBO, and PBS. When he's not writing his own tunes, he trains the next generation of six-string strummers through Craig's Guitar Lessons' at-home and in-studio sessions.

Drawing on both his guitar prowess and 10 years of teaching experience, Craig customizes each lesson around whatever skills and subjects compel his students. Those range from music theory and sight reading to rhythm- or lead-guitar techniques in a variety of genres including rock, blues, folk, and metal. Craig even teaches pupils their favorite songs, which saves each student's friends from having to pretend-listen to more air guitar.
