The Boulder School of Fine Art Classes and Workshops

The Boulder School of Fine Art offers a complete program of classical art education with a unique focus on drawing and painting the human figure and portraiture from life in natural north light.

Raz Seri, director and Elena Wilkes, instructor, bring to Colorado the same methods taught by the Florence Academy of Art, and used by European and American art masters of the past to draw and paint the figure, portraiture and still lifes with life like form and depiction of light. Students are coached individually in ongoing monthly, 8 and 12 session classes that have been designed to train the eye to see and the hand to draw and paint with mastery and personal style.

All levels welcome • Classes now forming for November - December
Call or text Sharon at 303-819-5923 or email sharon@bsofa.net to register
