The FdA Games Art course is designed to develop students' skills in the research, development and production of video game assets. It is designed for students who wish to turn their artistic talents into a career in the games industry. During the two-year course, students will learn and utilise techniques in 3D modelling, texturing and lighting, concept art, animation and life drawing. Students will learn alongside others who are passionate about games and will be taught both software and traditional techniques from introductory to advanced level. The course is also registered as an Apple developer, meaning students will work together in each of the two years to produce and submit a game to the iOS platform. This valuable experience combined with small class sizes delivers a bespoke course for future game artists. Our Games Art courses are delivered in one of the UK's games industry hubs, Royal Leamington Spa. Written and developed with over 10 local games studios, this course will teach you how to research, develop and produce industry standard video game assets and indie games.
