Providing high quality art classes in the Bay Area for over 20 years!


About Us

San Jose Art Academy has provided art lessons to students around the Bay Area for over 20 years. From teaching after school art programs in local public schools, to working with local organizations on public art projects, we have worked with hundreds of students and their families of all skill levels, ranging from those eager to explore creative expression for the first time, to those who have gone on to art colleges and made successful careers in the field.


We currently provide classes in Drawing, Painting, Design, Clay, and Portfolio Development. 

Our classes are arranged by age group, with a 8:1 student to teacher ratio. All of our instructors have graduated from top art programs, and all have at least 3 years of teaching experience. Our instructors are graduates of OTIS, SVA, Boston University, UCLA, and SFAI.
