Interested in game art? Come join us for a complimentary, hands on Character Design Workshop!

There are no limits to worlds you can create as a Game Artist. The magic happens when your ideas are brought to life in a collaborative environment, turning them into immersive experiences to share with people in an industry that is bigger than the music and movie industry put together. If you dream of making beautiful environments and characters for interactive stories, why wait?

About the Workshop

Students will learn the tools and techniques of industry professional concept artists. This course will instruct students on elements of graphic design, composition, color theory and shape psychology. Utilizing these elements the students will have a foundation for developing character designs that have a story and history.
