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.

Please call about our classes, services, or art for sale. (415) 387-7138

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!
