Sip, paint, and create memorable fun art with us on April 28th, 2018! We invite you to unleash your inner artist at one of our two classes. Our studio is dedicated to bringing art to life through the creative process. The instructor will teach each class with a fun theory for any beginner or professional to have a good time.

An all-star ensemble comprising eight of the finest performer/composers at work in jazz today, the SFJAZZ Collective’s mission each year is to perform fresh arrangements of works by a modern master and newly commissioned pieces by each Collective member. Through this pioneering approach, simultaneously honoring music’s greatest figures while championing jazz’s up-to-the-minute directions, the Collective embodies SFJAZZ’s commitment to jazz as a living ever-relevant art form.  In 2017-2018, they pay tribute to trumpeter, composer and innovator Miles Davis.  More than any other figure, Davis changed the sound of jazz throughout his career.
