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

Workshops range in subject from collage and color to landscape painting and figure drawing. The full-immersion aspects of the workshops and intensives provide an in-depth, time-limited experience that expands the creative range of participants while providing increased visual awareness and new skills. Workshops are offered throughout the year with summer having the most active series of events.

Painting, Drawing & Mixed Media Workshops

Workshops and Intensive courses are held throughout the year to offer artists and students concentrated study of specific subjects related to the visual arts. They are highly thought of and provide greater access to the school's programs and philosophy.

They explore a variety of media, challenge perception and encourage individual expression. SFSS workshops can be be taken as one-time-only events or to supplement and complement the full time curriculum. Many students repeat workshops because they continually offer fresh experiences.

Photography Workshops

Photography workshops include subjects as diverse as the mini-photo essay, the emotional qualities of color, the black and white photograph and the language of photography.
