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.

COMING SEPTEMBER - DECEMBER 2019. Works by Janny Huang and Joseph Yan and several of their students will be on exhibit at the San Francisco Botanical Gardens' Russell Library in Golden Gate Park. "A Classical Eye: Chinese Brush Painting of the Botancial Garden from the Teachers and Students of the Pine Studio" opens September 4, with a free public reception on Thursday, September 12, 5-7 p.m.

After 23 years on Clement Street in San Francisco, our building was sold in 2015 and we lost our lease. We have since moved our downsized school and services to Daly City.
