Game Art and Design


“The gaming industry has one of the fastest growing markets in the U.S. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts an increase in employment of 14% to 19% by 2018 and predicts employment of multimedia artists and animators to grow 6 percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations. We are looking for students who are interested in learning, who are dedicated, and possess a strong work ethic and a drive to succeed. Our goal is to teach you the skills needed to create first class digital content for games.”
