Teachers

The bulk of the teaching duties at The Academy of the South Side are handled by Tim Meehan and Shervin Iranshahr, with assistance from Dan Vogel.  Early in 2010 the talented Pat Lee joined the roster, bringing a fresh approach and years of teaching experience to our offering.

Grants and Affiliations

Beginning with our first Seed Award grant from the Sprout Fund, we've been very fortunate to receive the generous support of a variety of local funding sources.  We are also honored to be affiliated with several local organizations.  Click here to learn more.

Founding of the Academy

The mission of The Academy of the South Side is to be the resource that we as artists felt was lacking in Pittsburgh.  By offering classes, open model sessions, and exhibition opportunities, we aim to be a community-based resource for oil painters, from beginners to professionals.  Click here to read a Pop City article all about how we got started.
