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.

The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don?t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.

Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan?s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.

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.

For two decades, Harry Menedjian, the videographer at Long Term Memories, spent time working on the developing and editing side of the film industry. In 1989, he branched off into a new endeavor that put him behind the camera.

Now, he captures the first kiss between a new husband and wife, the joyful celebration of a baptism, and the fleeting disappointment on a birthday boy's face when he realizes that he didn't turn into Superman after blowing out his candles. He takes all that footage, edits it down, and puts it on high-definition DVDs and Blu-ray discs.

With schools on the shores of the United States, China, and the Philippines, the International Academy of Film and Television (IAFT) works to nurture the next generation of Hollywood’s elite. The academy's hands-on training, one-on-one attention, quality gear, and focus on all aspects of the craft, from writing to directing to performing, have earned it praise from the Hollywood Reporter as one of the Best Film Schools in the World. To put these means to use, IAFT hosts programs that can lead to certification or a diploma, as well as workshops that sharpen skills or introduce beginners to the world of the silver screen.

Yet for a student few things are more important than having a stolen answer key to their finals and an influential mentor. So IAFT stocks their faculty with experienced professionals such as Frederick Bailey. Bailey has directed more than 100 stage plays in theaters across the United States and has seen more than 20 of his screenplays become movies. He also holds a recurring role on the television soap Days of Our Lives and has taught acting, directing, and screenwriting in Japan and the Philippines.
