Why study with us?

This course enables you to develop your skills in a wide range of disciplines ranging from 3D modelling, texturing, lighting, concept art, drawing and the core specialisation of your choice. We’re keen to share our expertise with you so if you aspire to be an art director, designer, concept artist, modeller or animator, apply now.

The class sizes are kept small and the course has been structured and designed with input from industry to ensure that the right skill sets are being taught. Assignments range from technical briefs to develop your core skills to briefs from industry that allow you to try real world tasks, to creative briefs where the only limit is your imagination. The ultimate goal being, if you can imagine something, you can build it.

Each year our students never fail to amaze us with what they produce.
