Get ready to grow your skills.

Welcome to Foundation Art School!
We're making some changes to get ready for the launch of our monthly subscription program. It should launch in the next couple months and will give students access to a library of past demos. There may be some incomplete pages and links while the site is updated. Thanks for your patience while we work to get the site completed.

In the meantime, all of the 5 week classes below will be working normally.

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!!
