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.
Open seven days a week, Drop A Load Laundry makes clothing care fast, easy, and virtually hassle-free. Customers opting for fluff-and-fold service simply gather their dirty duds and bring them to the drop-off counter, where a friendly staff member weighs and prices them ($1/lb., 10 lb. minimum), casting a stain-lifting spell as they rub each garment with a magic wand. Socks, T-shirts, and undies go for a dip in the washing machine and a spin in the dryer before they're steamed, folded, and wrapped in plastic. Dresses, pants, and button-down shirts get steam-pressed and placed on hangers after their cleansing adventure, returning to their owners as wrinkle-free as a freshly moisturized rhinoceros. The steam team also tackles cumbersome items, from rumpled comforters to rugs to smelly sleeping bags ($1.75/lb.), preventing customers from dragging them to the nearest suds-filled lake.
