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 photographers at Attraction Studio doll up subjects before subjects make their debut in front of the flashing lights. Both the West Covina and Arcadia locations employ professional makeup and hair artists for family, boudoir, or maternity shoots that shuffle backdrops and allow two to three wardrobe changes. Personal items, such as a basketball, guitar, or piece of lint?brought along as props?add a touch of personality to the 25?50 photos snapped at the shoot. After the session, a computerized slideshow parades the fresh snapshots so that customers can nominate their favorites for prints and retouching. Pictures gain an aesthetic lift from Magic Touch, which enables photographers to remove wrinkles, blemishes, and third eyes.

Tearing into a perfectly charred, sauce-covered rack of ribs satisfies the stomach, and the knowledge that you made them yourself feeds the soul. Students can do just that in classes held by the nonprofit organization California BBQ Association, which shares all of its proceeds with children’s charities throughout the state. The course catalogue includes beginner and advanced classes led by pit masters such as Ric Gilbert, an inductee to the association’s hall of fame, and Harry Soo, a contestant from the first season of TLC’s BBQ Pitmasters. Fees cover the equipment and food needed to prepare dishes, freeing students from having to stop at a barbecue-sauce river and fill up some water bottles on their way to class.
