The demand for 2D interactive games has never been higher and it continues to grow exponentially each year. As a result, so has the demand for the Visual Artists responsible for the concepts, characters and animations for these games. The Video Game Art program will teach you the key skills to create professional level game art and animation for the games of the future.

Studying within our collaborative team environment, our Video Game Art students will learn the process of creating the visual assets required for modern interactive games, from concept designs through final game art and animation. 

Individuals will quickly advance their skills while building an extensive traditional and digital portfolio. This diploma program focuses on developing conceptualization and artistic skills, with a strong emphasis on creative problem solving. Through the development of 2D and 3D game art, we will explore a variety of styles that align with today’s industry standards.

Using leading tools and software, our students will be prepared for a position at a modern interactive game studio.
