Welcome!  The Academy of the South Side is a community resource dedicated to realist oil painting and drawing.  We offer classes, workshops, open model sessions, and exhibition opportunities for local artists and the greater community.  As we grow, we aim to become a permanent fixture of Pittsburgh's arts community, putting our region on the map of locations where top notch realist painters practice, work, and live.

Summer Classes

We offer a variety of oil painting and drawing classes year-round at The Academy, focusing on portraiture, figurative, and still life subject matter as the basis for studio practice.  We build on this foundation by offering classes for varying skill levels from beginners to pros, opportunities to work on location outside the studio, and classes geared toward building specific skills.  By rotating classes throughout the year and providing continuity from beginning through advanced classes, we aim to provide a comprehensive curriculum that addresses all phases of the learning process.
