Welcome to the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art's Studio Sessions Program. We have structured the program to give you, the student, a more clear and concise sampling of classes, and to assist in creating a curriculum that is suited for you. These classes are perfect for the dedicated art student that is unable to attend our Full-time Atelier Program, but wants serious art instruction from our highly qualified faculty.
The Studio Sessions Program is geared toward the working arts professional, part-time student, and recreational artist. These classes are conveniently offered weekdays, weekends, and evenings to fit your busy schedule.
We offer beginner-to-advanced level classes to meet the requirements of virtually every student. Choose from the type of study you would like to pursue, be it Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Illustration and Workshops. Once you choose a category, the classes are listed in the order that LAAFA would suggest you take them.
Which class is right for me?
Within each category the courses are numbered in order of difficulty, the lower numbers being less advanced. For example, in the Drawing Section, Introduction to Drawing is #100, while Advanced Life Drawing is #160. This way you can determine the classes you should attend and in the order that will offer you maximum results. There are no pre-requisites for the Studio Sessions Program, so if you feel that you have surpassed certain classes, feel free to move along. If you would like assistance in determining which courses to take, we will gladly help you - with no obligation.
