Teachers

Art School of SF Bay teachers are skilled artists with Fine Arts degrees, working in realistic tradition. We teach representational drawing from nature to kids and adults in a creative and approachable way.

 

We do believe that even sophisticated concepts of fine art can be taught to anybody, no matter how young and untrained. Everything can be explained in simple words and taught in the form of exciting game.

 

Our method focuses on traditional disciplines, techniques and tools necessary to release the essence and expansion of fully realized self expression.
