WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

A brief introduction to our school.

WHY DID WE CREATE FOUNDATION ART SCHOOL?

Foundation Art School is designed for beginner to intermediate art students who want to learn the fundamentals of representational art. Our classes are perfect for aspiring professional artists as well as passionate hobbyists. The fundamental skills we teach are critical for illustration, concepting, storyboarding, fine art and any professional field that is based in representational art.

HOW DOES THE SCHOOL WORK?

Our courses are five weeks long and consist of weekly demos and, for Gold-level students, a personalized critique video for each week. All students will receive the same reference that the instructor uses in the demo plus more images to work from for their weekly practice assignments.

WHAT CLASSES DO WE TEACH?

We teach a wide variety of classes including figure drawing, head drawing, quick sketch, anatomy, perspective, drapery, clothed figure, and more.

What Our Students Say

Hi Brian! Your school is awesome. It is such a great resource for me to study from. Thank you! I can't wait for next term.

Greetings, I'd like to start by thanking Mr. Knox for these wonderful courses. I'd seen some of his demos from the Watts Atelier online and thought they were among the best out there. When I heard he was starting Foundation Art School I was thrilled. I'm currently taking 3,5,7 minute figure drawing and his head drawing classes (silver package), and I've been truly loving them.

Hey Brian, I just wanted to thank you for the figure drawing class I just finished. I actually learned more in the 5 weeks than I did in four years of art school! I hope to be taking the next class soon. Thanks again!!
