Our Mission

Joseph Fine Art School and Gallery helps students of all ages express their artistic imaginations and develop their own unique styles through the medium of traditional Chinese visual arts.

The School

The Joseph Fine Art School was established 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 and form the school staff. Their works are exhibited in many galleries and collected by people worldwide.
