Workshop Levels

Our workshops fall into three categories or skill levels. We recommend only choosing workshops that are suitable for your skill level, so please read the descriptions below thoroughly! Advanced workshops will be announced soon, so please stay tuned. If you still have questions, please contact us: contact@carbon-black.design

Foundation

Suitable for:

Beginners who are just starting out and intermediate artists who want to work on their fundamentals. Strong fundamentals are the cornerstone for good design and for working successfully in the gaming and film industry! So if you already have some experience, but struggle to achieve the quality you need to compete internationally, our foundation workshops are a perfect fit!

Prerequisites:

None

Aim of the workshop:

Beginners learn basic drawing skills like breaking down complex objects into simple shapes, using line weight to convey depth and using the draw-through method to depict objects three dimensionally. Novice participants also learn how to approach every drawing with confidence instead of being hesitant. More experienced artists also profit immensely from our foundation workshops, as they will strengthen their fundamentals, improve their visual communication skills, learn professional presentation skills and learn the core principles of design. Intermediate participants learn the skills that are needed to compete internationally and how to present their designs in a way that makes it usable as a portfolio piece that meets this industry’s high standards.

Certificate:

On the last day participants receive a Carbon Black Workshop Certificate, signed by their instructor.
