Throughout this course, we'll be dedicated to crafting a diverse array of images, with a strong focus on unique designs, design thinking, and fundamental skills. In addition to several small term projects, students will engage in a larger class project, challenging them to expand their design boundaries and create a series of portfolio images based on their chosen narratives. This class will center around programs like Blender, Photoshop and 3D Coat and how they are used to push narrative and design.

In addition, your instructor will be providing a series of design, modeling, and environment concept art tutorials to provide the students with extra learning and information.

This mentorship is hands down the best class I have taken for Environment design. Kevin as a mentor was really patient and understanding and took his time giving out a lot of valuable feedback throughout the course of the mentorship!After taking this class I've been exposed to this insane amount of potential that I never knew I had, because of how I was pushed skill wise. I am now comfortable enough to take more projects out on my own and keep applying whatever I learnt throughout this course! I can definitely say I have grown tremendously in my ability to do Environment design in this course of time!

Thank you so muchKevin Jickn and SathishKumar for making this amount of quality knowledge available for us!

Kyle Manzo
Concept artist

After taking art classes from various online schools, I found that Art Train Academy's Environment Design Mentorship taught by Kevin Jick surpassed my expectations in every way. The course structure, which was split into two days—one for demos and one for feedback—was my favorite of any class I have taken. You can truly tell that Kevin has a passion for teaching-always providing every student his full attention and making certain that they were consistently moving forward with their individual pieces and projects. I learned so much and I look forward to the opportunity to take another class with Kevin in the future  to absorb even more of his wisdom and insight. Thanks so much Kevin Jick for the invaluable feedback and SathishKumar for providing a learning platform that provides so much at such a great price!  I look forward to my next class with the Art Train Academy and hope to see some familiar faces!

Concept Artist

A highly effective, motivating, and developing environment design mentorship class that I will remember with warmth. Here, I received many answers to my questions about concept art, received valuable feedback that boosted my skills to the moon! All of these valuable knowledge that I have gained, I will hone with every new work. Huge thanks Kevin Jick for truly enormous contribution to this course, for the dedication with which each of us could receive the maximum amount of useful information, not only during feedback days, but also throughout the week. Huge thanks Sathish Kumar for an excellent school where we could learn so much!
