What is the Fundamentals Bootcamp?

Our Fundamentals Bootcamp is a structured program comprising of a focused set of classes that are optimally grouped to help beginners, who are starting their artistic journey, learn and strengthen their fundamental art skills.

Far too often, beginner artists, who dream of becoming a top concept artist, traditional artist or an illustrator, avoid practicing important fundamental skills such as perspective and anatomy, either because it is too hard, or because they feel its a waste of time, or worse, because they find it boring. Shortcuts are great but skipping these fundamental skills lessons early in their artistic training will deprive the students of the solid art foundation that is essential to build when they work on more complex projects in the future and wish to build a successful career.

The classes in the program are organized and scheduled to help the students learn key theoretical concepts and practices that will build on each other from one term to the next. Syn Studio’s great roster of industry experienced instructors, who prioritize our students growth and success over everything else, will make the process of strengthening art fundamentals, an easy, fun and memorable experience!

The concepts learnt in this program will help a beginner student become a more well rounded artist ready to tackle any complex art project in the future. In addition, by completing this program, students will also have built the skills required to create a portfolio that can be used to apply for our Online Concept Art Program!

Fundamentals Bootcamp Program Features

Our Fundamentals Bootcamp is divided into terms. Each term features 4 courses scheduled over a period of 10 weeks. Students interested in attending the Bootcamp are recommended to attend all the classes to ensure optimal progression in their learning process. Fundamentals Bootcamps can be purchased separately (Part 1 or Part 2) or together (Part 1 and Part 2) for additional savings. It is advised that the students take these terms consecutively for best results.

While we suggest following the classes in both Part 1 and Part 2, if the student has already developed sufficient skills in the topics covered in Part 1, they can choose to follow just Part 2 on its own, skipping Part 1. However, in this case, the student will be required to submit examples of their artwork once registered.

Students registered in the Fundamentals Bootcamp will also receive the following perks (each term):

  1. A discounted price on each class in the term
  2. Free access to exclusive online resource library
  3. A free spot in the term’s featured Webinar or Q&A session with a renowned artist and
  4. A free spot in the one-on-one portfolio review with a professional concept artist scheduled for the term
