The Entertainment Art certificate is for students wanting a career as an artist working for a studio in the Film, TV, Animation and Game industries. The focus is on World Building, known as Visual Development in these industries. These artists design and illustrate characters, environments, vehicles and props that form the visual world of stories we see on screen. The program is intended to introduce students to these fields and give them the skills and methods for internship and entry level jobs, and that enable the lifelong learning necessary to be an Entertainment Artist.
- Demonstrate the skills necessary to design and illustrate worlds (environments, characters, vehicles and props) for stories made for screens.
- Create a portfolio utilizing industry standard techniques for the purpose of gaining employment and/or acceptance to an art college or university for advanced learning.
Certificate of Achievement Requirements
The Certificate of Achievement is a state-approved career program that requires a minimum of eight units and is designed to prepare the graduate to enter a particular field of employment. In order to be awarded a certificate, students are required to obtain a grade of “C” or better in all program-required courses. Grades of “CR” or “P” will be accepted whereas “CR” or “P” meets the equivalency of a “C” or better. At least 3 units in an advanced course from the certificate must be completed at OCC at the department’s discretion. Certificates of Achievement are not automatically awarded. A petition must be filed in Enrollment Services or online at the beginning of the semester in which the student will be completing their final requirements.
