Join Gnomon Recruiter Adam Hartel on Friday, August 21 at 11:00 a.m. as he speaks with Gnomon’s Admissions Department and discusses in-depth Gnomon’s Foundation in Art and Design Course of Study and the benefits and pathways it creates.

During this presentation, Adam Hartel will be joined by Gnomon Admissions Advisor Zach Mendoza, whose experience includes illustration, graphic design, and painting and they will discuss what makes the Foundation in Art and Design Course of Study unique and cover multiple aspects such as: why foundation and traditional art skills are important to working in 3D, how you can get started at Gnomon with no portfolio and little art experience, how Admissions provide portfolio coaching during this course of study, and more! They will also talk about learning the right skills for building an effective portfolio. The event will also include a Q&A session so that Zach and Adam can respond to your questions in real-time.

RSVP for the livestream event today.


Gnomon's full-time programs and 10-week individual courses are designed to develop well-rounded artists that are skilled in the diverse disciplines within 3D production. For those outside of the US, virtual classroom-style online courses are also available.
