Program Details:

This program is intended for beginners and advanced students looking to learn realism or understand fundamentals to drawing more accurate and detailed work. This is focused group with hands on instruction about creating highly accurate artwork.

This is an Artists’ Atelier

Jason Budowski is a portrait and seascape artists with a painting recently accepted into the de Young Open in 2023. In 2017, he was hired to bring classical realism to 5th – 8th graders at Adda Clevenger in San Francisco. The curriculum was quickly modified to a more direct and engaging approach to learning art and realism. Here at Bay Area Art School, students will learn how to draw anything and everything – including from imagination.

“This program is designed for students to gain a vast understanding of art, methods, styles, materials, and theories whether for personal improvement or preparation for next level highschools, colleges, and fine art ateliers.” – Mr. Budowski
