Studio Arts was founded in December, 2001. Studio Arts was begun because of the many experiences of its President, Eric Huelsman and his many years of working with and training the studio artists he had come to know over that time. The fact that these artists were among the most talented in the world and whose work stood at the apex of fine art warranted opening a school that would provide studio artists the kind of training they needed to stay at the top of their professions.

Located in the beautiful Los Angeles River Center Gardens, Studio Arts is the perfect setting for a school of fine art. Surrounded by gardens, fountains and beautiful architecture, it has quickly become the school of choice for many motion picture, television, and video game professionals working in the entertainment industry.

Studio Arts’ faculty consists of experienced production artists who are working at the top of their craft and includes many who are published authors as well as entertainment industry professionals currently recognized internationally for their artistic accomplishments at studios such as Walt Disney Animation Studios, DreamWorks SKG, Sony Imageworks, Rhythm and Hues and many others.

Studio Arts' MISSION is to enhance the skills of professionals working in the entertainment industry through quality training in media production. Studio Arts utilizes instructional methods that unlock and enhance an artist’s creative potential. This is accomplished through the use of state of the art hardware and software as well as a professional, talented and diverse faculty that has developed a world class curriculum. Trainees who complete our courses will do so with the ability to master the latest technology and techniques for affecting the highest level of work-ready skills attainable. To do this, Studio Arts has developed and will continue to foster strong, working relationships within the entertainment industry worldwide that are essential to our students’ career success.
