Character & Game Design 

8 week course for teens and adults


Do you sometimes wish you lived in a fantasy world or alternate realm? Want to sharpen your drawing skills and learn how video games are designed? This class explores the creative process behind character design, concept art for environments, and game mechanics. This is a drawing class that focuses on creating concept art – there will be no programming or coding component.


The main project is to design an original video game character complete with accessories, based on an existing game you love, such as Mario World, Fortnite, League of Legends, etc. Previous drawing experience is ideal as this course is for advanced-intermediate level students.
