Great classes by masters of visual and workshop crafts. Many very talented artists also call this place home--a studio and office to a myriad of makers. A welcoming meeting space for groups and students. A true place of learning.

 Yori the founder here is very knowledgeable, and I took a private model making class with him and it was very solid 2 hours. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to make something, anything:)

I took a frame-making class last week that was phenomenal. Yori is so kind, patient, and knowledgeable. He is dedicated to unlocking and equipping the creative potential in everyone that enters. I'm glad I know about this place (how did I not??) The School of Visual Philosophy is a San Jose treasure.
