Workshops

Workshops will take place on weekends and the subject matter varies. (graphic design, digital illustration, and 3D modeling, and game production)

Graphic Design Workshops

Some of the best designers in the graphic design profession don’t really draw pictures. Working with color, balance and graphic elements, a skilled graphic designer coordinates layout and design for all kinds of projects, such as magazine layout, book cover design, advertisements, billboards, websites, etc. In the graphic design workshop you will get experience in multiple programs, with attention to vector graphics. We will work with type, shapes, and other graphic elements to get a good feel for designing material that is ready for print and web.

Digital Illustration Workshops

Illustration on the computer is a very forgiving medium, and learning the tools to manipulate raster graphics is an important cornerstone to any field in computer art technology. Having traditional arts skills is helpful, but technology can speed up the learning curve for beginners. Whether you draw or manipulate photos, these workshops will give you the basic skills to get started making art using a digital tablet monitor.

3D Modeling Workshops

The vast world of 3D modeling and animation can seem foreboding at first. We give you the jump start you need to learn to model, sculpt in digital space using a digital tablet, understand texturing your 3D models. Lights, camera… action!

Game Production Workshops

Coming soon.
