About the Course:

Classes are split into lectures with visual demonstrations of techniques or programs introduced to the students, and group critique time for student assignments. Both facilitators and students participate in the group critiques. By the end of this course, students will have a concept art portfolio that will allow them to apply to creative job positions.


Homework and project submissions will be graded on effort, level of understanding of weekly content as demonstrated by the student, and timely uploading of their assignments to their online portfolio.
Students will be submitting their assignments weekly via their online portfolio. Each student is required to create a single online portfolio via sites, such as deviantART and Tumblr, to hold and showcase their work. While the instructors will be checking these portfolios weekly for timestamped submissions, the online portfolios are also to encourage each student to build an online presence as an artist.
