As artists and art historians, our mission is to promote creative
and critical thought through a wide range of disciplines:
Our comprehensive and vigorous art curriculum is offered to the culturally and economically diverse Bay Area community via online, hybrid and in person art classes at the Downtown, Fort Mason and Ocean campuses and at the Legion of Honor.
We look forward to working with you in reaching your artistic and educational goals and invite you to contact us with any questions about our courses and program.
VISIT THE GALLERY
"Last night, we attended the opening of a special exhibition at
City College of San Francisco(Almost) Free Formed, featuring
collaborative works of former City College students Barry McGee, Chris
Johanson, and Laurie Reid. The quiet, intimate night was highlighted
by the trio's organization and layout of the show, and also gave
notice to the importance of SF's City College to some of the most
successful and influential artists to come out of San Francisco in
recent decades." Juxatpoz, Feb 2013
"A lot of my first art classes I ever took were here,” Johanson
said. “There’s a diversity of people that go to school here. It’s a
really great place, as a young adult, to learn about life and
art-making at the same time. I could never have afforded to go
anywhere else." Chris Johanson speaking about CCSF, interviewed
by The Guardsman. Artist Chris Johanson was featured in the Whitney
Bienniel, Bay Area Now, and awarded SFMOMA’s Seca Award.
