Even with all the amazing advancements in digital art tools, the key to success for production artists is still a strong visual development process and the foundational art skills to execute that process. This track prepares students for the rich and rewarding experience of being a production artist for video games, animation, and more.  Within your Project Lab, students in the art track serve as the game team’s resident artist, developing characters, backgrounds, and other essential components for their game.

During this four-week-long program, you will get to experience what life is like for DigiPen college students who are working to complete their Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Art and Animation to become game artists. The students in this track take three (3) core academic classes plus the game project lab that involves all of the students from all of the Pre-College tracks to work together to complete a game:

  • ART: Art Foundations
  • ANI: Animation Techniques (with Lab)
  • CG: Computer Graphics Tools (with Lab)
  • GAM: Game Project Lab

Tuition includes:

  • Lunch
  • Art supplies and materials


  • No prior experience or knowledge is required but participants must be entering their Junior or Senior year of high school, or have graduated high school within the last 18 months.
