Students will work intimately with instructors to learn all the skills to create their own games, which will be on display and demonstrated before the Summer Art Intensive’s live performances on July 28th.
The Game Intensive is a great opportunity for students interested in learning more about a career in the video game industry. Through a series of projects, students experience what it is like to be part of a creative studio making designs for a game. Fundamental drawing and design principles specific to this industry are discussed through slide show presentations, lectures, and instructor demonstrations. Students will have a great experience and the lessons learned will empower students to create with greater confidence.
