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.
