I have less experience with this school, but in taking a class with Pamela Lanza (a SFAI alum) I was also introduced to 2 other SFAI alumni: Zheng Chongbin and Travis Somerville. I thought both artists were really interesting - meeting them and seeing their studios definitely influenced my recent work. It certainly reflects well on SFAI that interesting alumni are active in the area, exhibiting abroad and also taking time to open their studios for a fellow alumni's class.

The work out of their painting department is pretty interesting (showcased with better web-design than CCA) and professor Jeremy Morgan's work is bold, voluptuous and has a beautiful use of paint.
