Art Classes in Drawing and Oil Painting

The Boston School of Painting offers fine art classes in drawing and oil painting as taught in the tradition of 18th and 19th century European ateliers.

Studio art classes run continuously throughout the year. These art classes include instruction in oil painting and drawing  – using both graphite and charcoal. The curriculum features instruction in cast drawings created in charcoal. Classes in the the human figure are scheduled based upon interest.

Jason Polins personally assists all art students with their choice of art materials such as graphite, charcoal, chalk, paints and brushes. Equally important, he guides his students with selecting the appropriate paper or canvas for their assignments.

Jason’s approach to teaching is so successful that even a total beginner in arts is able to achieve mastery, no matter what their initial skill level.
