The picturesque surroundings of Filoli make a wonderful venue for art and artists, providing inspiration and a range of valuable resources. Students can experience one-on-one instruction and personal guidance while attending one of our 2 – 5 day classes or work on their own during special Artist Access Days. Artists are invited to join our registry of art exhibitors. A new schedule of exhibits is revisited annually.
