Established in 1975.
Founders Larry and Sheila Gluck began Mission: Renaissance® in the living room of their Los Angeles area home. Originally delivering art classes for adults, Larry developed his revolutionary method of instruction - The Gluck Method®. Within months, due to the growing number of students, the first Mission: Renaissance® studio opened in Hollywood.
Children's art classes were developed in 1985 based upon the successful program for adults proving that anyone, regardless of age or previous skill level, can be taught how to draw and paint beautifully.
Adhering to teaching students how to draw and paint using The Gluck Method®, dedicated instructors continue to lead the way in fine art training for children, teens and adults.
Mission: Renaissance® has grown to be the World's Largest Fine Art Program and has repeatedly been voted #1 for fine art classes in Los Angeles. Perhaps this is why Mission: Renaissance® is recommended by Disney® as a place to gain solid fine art training.

Larry Gluck began formal art training in 1944 at age 13 under the tutelage of Giusseppi Trotta, Italian master portrait artist. Larry graduated Pratt Institute - 1953 & graduated Adelphi College - 1955.
Larry and wife Sheila lived on St. Thomas V.I. throughout the 1960s where he gained world renown as a watercolor artist. By 1970, 3, 500 paintings hung throughout the world-from the private collections of Charles Revson (Founder, Revlon Cosmetics) to the Danish Royal Family.
In 1975 Larry began teaching & pioneered the first complete step-by-step fine art training program. It was soon realized that by using his revolutionary teaching method, anyone, with or without natural talent, could learn to draw and paint beautifully.
In 1985 Larry developed his famous children's art program using the same techniques proven effective with adult students. The step-by-step program immediately succeeded and in fact originated numerous private art training programs throughout Southern California.
