San Francisco Studio School of Drawing, Painting, Photography & Mixed Media


The school is located in downtown San Francisco adjacent to historic North Beach and Jackson Square as well as the financial district. It is easily accessible by public transportation. The facilities are designed around the philosophy of the school: A large, well lit studio, a bright seminar room, a small gallery space, a galley kitchen, painting racks and taborets - all symbolize the premise for the school. It is a place for work, for discourse and for continuity of effort.

The working space at the San Francisco Studio School is comprised of a large loft-like studio for drawing, painting and mixed media. A separate seminar room is provided where critical studies, critiques and discussions are held. There is superb natural light in the facility and high ceilings. There is also a small gallery where exhibitions related to the school and its curriculum are held. A kitchenette permits students to bring lunches and evening meals as needed according to their schedules.

The facility, which is accessible to the Studio Program students 24/7, is a manifestation of the school's philosophy. It is a bright artist's space dedicated to continuity of work and supported by critical studies. The facilities are intended to encourage depth of concentration and high aspiring.

The school is within walking distance to the downtown gallery district, North Beach, Chinatown, the Embarcadero and Levi Plaza Park. A full-supply art store is also within walking distance.
