Game Art Institute
Game Art Institute offers part-time, 12-week online courses in game art development and virtual reality development.
Founded in 2010, Game Art Institute offers bootcamps that encompass skills and the workflows needed to kickstart a career in game design and development.
The courses aim to teach students everything from modularity to texturing to lighting and rendering, and students learn to create game art while mastering pipeline and best practices. The VR development bootcamp teaches students how to use Unity and C# programming to build movement, interaction, UIs, and avatars. During the bootcamps, students actively participate in bi-weekly sessions with cohorts and mentors as they progress through milestones of the 3D artist program.
Applicants should have a basic understanding of polygonal modeling and sculpting processes and have a passion for creating characters for the film and game industry.
Game Art Institute courses are conducted via online web conferencing software to allow direct access to instructors. Courses are also downloadable and available to stream through the system. By the end of the course, students can expect to develop a full portfolio project under constructive peer review, and receive 6 to 8 months of guidance in evaluating job offers and negotiating terms before job acceptance
