Concept Art Online Intensive July 13-17, 2020

Have you ever read a book and visualized how it would look on the big screen? Students will generate an idea for a movie and create visual representations that demonstrate their vision. Students will design characters, sets, props and/or visual effects that help tell their story.

THIS IS A GOOD CONCENTRATION IF YOU: Love movies. Visualize other worlds. Doodle characters, their home planets and their costumes.

Detailed Description

This one week course will help you explore the exciting field of Concept Art. Students can choose to work by hand using traditional methods (paper, pencil, pen, markers, etc.)  or digitally using their own Wacom tablet or Cintiq. In this course, you will:

  • Develop your visual vocabulary and drawing skills
  • Learn techniques used in the film, game, and animation industries
  • Create work for your Concept Art college admissions portfolio
  • Meet experienced industry professionals
  • Learn under the direction of CCS faculty

The Concept Art Online Intensive lead instructor will be CCS Entertainment Arts Adjunct Professor Dave Swartz. 

Each morning and afternoon, classes will connect via Zoom sessions that will be used for small-group live video chats, demos, and lectures that teach industry design and drawing techniques.  You will work on assignments independently, develop your visual vocabulary, and create portfolio-quality work. You will also have a one-on-one session with your professor and portfolio guidance from an admissions counselor.  A tentative schedule is attached.  

Guest Experts: 

Tim Flattery, Concept Artist for feature films such as “The Avengers: Infinity Wars”, “Captain Marvel”, and “The Hunger Games”.

Ryan Gitter, Concept Artist for “PS4 Destiny 2”

You will have the amazing opportunity to interact with experts in the Concept Art industry and learn more about how to take the first steps toward this exciting field.  The week will culminate with individual reviews with your professor and admissions professionals.

After a week of the 2020 Concept Art Online Intensive program, students will know if this is the right career path for them and be well prepared to take the first steps toward that future.
