WANT TO BECOME A PROFESSIONAL CONCEPT ARTIST AND ILLUSTRATOR?
MOTIVATION | DEDICATION | DISCIPLINE
What is "Focal Point"?
Founded by Darek Zabrocki and Michal Kus, and in collaboration with the Gdynia Film School in Poland, Focal Point is the first physical school in Europe providing onsite courses for Entertainment Design and Illustration.
Individuals seeking to become concept artists have limited options to choose from in schools and universities across Europe because of the lack of courses and seasoned professionals to teach those classes.
Focal Point seeks to eliminate that gap by providing students with the full learning experience in a friendly community of artists and professionals.
Focal Point is run by Darek Zabrocki & Michal Kus, two well-established European concept artists with both 6+ years of experience in the entertainment art industry. Darek and Michal not only have had the experience of teaching at other schools and mentorships, but also realize how hard it is to find the right education in order to become a successful concept artist. That is why at Focal Point, the mission is to teach students the fundamentals of design and integrate them in a physical environment with industry professionals in order to properly uphold education in concept art with motivation, dedication and discipline.

This is why I was extremely trilled to learn, that two of the most progressing and young Concept Artists nowadays were going to share their knowledge with the aspiring artists from all around the globe!
Just a quick glimpse on Darek and Michal's rich and various portfolios, and you'll find easy that all of the ingredients that make a Concept Art and Design great are there!
In fact, there is even something more! Something I've noticed during a number of presentations and events we've been together with Darek and Michal – and it's all about their undoubted skills to teach and share their professional experience and know how in a very understandable, easy accessible and friendly manner!"
