A Mission: Renaissance instructor coaches a young artist on fine art basics.

Taxi TV has commissioned 11 year old art student Leo Gilmore to design the company's new logo. Leo is a student at Mission: Renaissance Fine Art Classes in Santa Clarita, California.

The fine art education giant was founded in 1975 by American fine artist and educator Larry Gluck with the purpose of restoring the basics of fine art into art education.

The young artist said this about his accomplishments : "I used a computer program to design the logo applying all the basic drawing techniques I learned at Mission: Renaissance. I want to follow in Walt Disney's footsteps. I'd like to go to CalArts and I want to try all forms of art. I've learned things I never knew about art, like making my pictures look three dimensional and many other things. Art is the only activity I really care about and my art classes are the most fun for me. I really love my teacher, she's the best!"

Leo has also been commissioned to illustrate a new book by Heath Michaels titled "Forty Ways To Bring Out The Super Hero In You." He was awarded a scholarship to Laurel Springs Academy, due to his academic and art accomplishments. 

"Our students have accomplished amazing things through their art instruction, so I'm not surprised to hear that Leo has received commissions for his work. I am very proud of Leo for being able to apply the skills that we are teaching him to other forms of art outside of our classes," Program Director Sara Bukowsky said.
