Our Mission

Joseph & Janny's Art Studio helps students of all ages express their artistic imaginations and develop their own unique styles through the medium of traditional Chinese visual arts.

The Studio

We originally established our practice as The Joseph Fine Art School in 1992 for children and adults interested in understanding traditional Chinese art. Our objectives are for students to learn about traditional Chinese art, to appreciate art, and to create their own art.

Professional instructors Joseph Yan and Janny Huang graduated from major art institutes in China. Their works are exhibited in many galleries and collected by people worldwide. They often place a chop on their work to locate its origin in "The Pine Studio," referencing the great pine that stands in their beautiful garden.



CLASSES TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED. Dear Students, due to the pandemic of COVID-19, we are closing classes until further notice. Take good care everyone.

JANNY HUANG ARTWORK SELECTED FOR THE DE YOUNG OPEN EXHIBITION "ON THE EDGE" We are delighted to announce that Janny is one of the select group of artists to be represented in the de Young Museum's first-ever open exhibition! Just 763 artists from the 6,190 artists who entered were chosen. Janny's piece "Moonlight" is one of 881 works from the 11,518 entered that will be displayed. The work represents a Steller's Jay perched on a branch of a magnolia tree. The museum will announce when it can install the show and allow visitors back into galleries. The entire show will also be exhibited online.

For three wonderful months at the end of 2019 the Helen Crocker Russell Library in Golden Gate Park featured our exhibition "A Classical Eye: Chinese Brush Painting of the Botanical Garden from the Teachers and Students of the Pine Studio." The show attracted enthusiastic viewers. We heard from so many people about how much they were impressed and loved the show. Keep an eye on the Library's website at https://www.sfbg.org/art-exhibit for more beautiful art and more work from the Pine Studio!
