In this course James Clyne will teach you how to elevate your art and your approach to design. An Art Director sits at the same table as the directors and is responsible for helping a director realize their vision. You have to think fast. You have to be open. You have to have a wide assortment of skills and resources.
In this nine week Live, Online course you will meet with James once a week via our online platform as well as in an exclusive Facebook group.
