Kids’ art classes, which are suited to students between the ages of 5 and 12, show youngsters how to use charcoal and pastels to create basic shapes with three-dimensional effects. Instructors also introduce watercolors to explain the relationships between primary, secondary, and complementary colors. The programs for teens and adults begin by teaching attendees how to create confident sketches before showing them how to create life-like forms with depth, form, and perspective. Books and materials are included.
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. 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.

“We chose the Pasadena Shoppers Lane which is a busy area and parking can be challenging. The great part is the teacher! Juan is extremely nice and I am impressed with how easily he goes from one student to the other seamlessly. All the students work at their own pace and Juan is so great with the teens. My daughter has never had formal foundation teaching and this is all being covered. Well worth it!”
“It's great, my kids enjoyed it, but a little too pricey for me.”
“They are very nice and the classes are very interesting”
