Video Game Art Directors

Exploring This Job

High school students can get an idea of what an art director does by working on the staff of the school newspaper, magazine, or yearbook. Developing your own artistic talent is important, and this can be accomplished through self-training (reading books about animation and video games and then applying it on your own) or through formal training in animation, painting, drawing, and other creative arts. At the very least, develop your "creative eye," that is, your ability to develop ideas visually. Any art classes will help to develop these skills.
