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.
Designed by the pro freerunners of Team Tempest and by X-Games ramp builder Nate Wessel, Tempest Freerunning Academy houses more than 7,000 square feet of parkour and freerunning obstacles. Freerunning distills parkour, a physical endeavor that consists of running and jumping as a means of moving from spot to spot efficiently, into combos of acrobatic moves choreographed to please the eye and give gravity a self-confidence complex. A staff of professional freerunners facilitates athleticism in classes that gradually progress from Parkour 101, which focuses on building strength and balance, to the invite-only Tr? Freedom, which emphasizes flowing safely through creative maneuvers.
The colorful indoor facility emulates a playground with a 10'x14' Aussie Bed trampoline and a six-foot-deep pit of foam. Budding athletes vault from a spongy gymnastics floor like Olympians piggybacking on kangaroos toward 32-foot ceilings or scale a 14-foot warped wall before the eyes of seated spectators.
A birthday party at Kids Ahoy! takes tots on an ocean adventure, without ever leaving shore. A wooden pirate's ship stands in the center of the playplace, inviting kids to traipse up the plank to the deck. From that vantage point, kids take stock of the playground, packed with activities for kids as young as 9 months and as old as 12 years. Tire swings hang on the side of the boat, challenging kids to see if they have retained the iron grip all babies are born with. In the moon bounce, kids safely leap and jump around, and turbo slides send kids on a twisty ride. Stocked with books, train sets, play sets, and playhouses, this place is bursting with toys to stimulate imaginations, and when everyone needs a break, they can retire to the picnic tables for a snack or the adirondack chairs to spin yarns about the good old days.
Anthem Music Lessons is the brainchild of two passionate rockers: Phil Ernst, a Musicians Institute of Technology grad and professional guitarist, and his prot?g?, Jared Canchola.
