Washington Studio School
The Washington Studio School (WSS), a nonprofit organization established in 1985, offers classes primarily in drawing, painting, sculpture to adults and high-school teens. We teach students at all levels and provide a community of learning through lecture series, critique sessions, gallery exhibits, and a library. Our emphasis is on learning by doing and on personal attention. True to the best traditions in visual art, we teach what it is to see and to relate to the present.
We have created an environment that allows intimacy in teaching, opportunities for mentoring, and shared learning among students as well as between teacher and students. Our atelier of shared studio space for working artists is one of few located within the DC area. Those who study here are serious about the life-long pursuit of art and are highly motivated.
