Course summary

Are you an artist who is passionate about games? Do you want to develop art skills to meet the challenges of the games industry? At Falmouth you'll work with Programmers and Designers in a studio environment to make innovative and arresting art for games.

Introduction

Nurture your creativity as you collaborate with like-minded artists in an inspired and focused space. We welcome illustrators, painters, fine artists, sculptors, architects, graphic designers, or anyone with a passion for the visual dimensions of games. Whatever your artistic background, you’ll graduate from this course as a knowledgeable, workplace-ready professional with a strong insight into the games industry.

What you'll learn

We cover a range of areas to aid your growth both creatively and technically. By the second study block, you’ll already be putting your skills into context by working on a game art project, and learning to co-create in a team. This all leads up to a final submission where you’ll have the opportunity to build a game with coders and designers in a full development team, or if you prefer, craft your own standout portfolio piece.

How you'll learn

You’ll gain stylistic and technical skills through practical, hands-on learning. Including:

  • Life drawing, painting and sculpture
  • Lectures
  • Seminars
  • Workshops
  • Crit sessions
  • Tutorials
  • Guest speakers
  • Mentoring

How you'll be assessed

Coursework is the only form of assessment on this course.
