What Our Students Say

I’ve worked with several fantastic teachers and Brian really spends the time on each person to figure out exactly what they seem to be struggling with and then he’s able to visually and verbally explain the solution.

 

Alex Quinn

BUFFALO, NY, USA

Immediately, I was struck by the way Brian could so clearly educate through his visual language, through drawing. With Foundation Art School, Brian presents this same clarity and mastery of visual language in a structured, easy to understand way that has such practical density for the student.

 

Tom Ansell

BANKSIA GROVE, PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA

Brian is excellent at giving the attention you need to progress with extensive feedback and draw overs. He makes sure you get the information he's teaching and will explain it as much as it takes. He is extremely kind, patient, and personable, so don't feel like you have to understand everything right away.  If you ever decide to take a class, you are in good hands.
