Become an archviz artist

with relevant knowledge and skillset

As archviz software becomes widely available, it will be more difficult for 3D artists to stand out from the crowd. To create an impressive image, it is no longer enough to exactly show reality. As a successful professional, you have to be able to develop a mood that matches the scene, apply storytelling and follow basic artistic composition techniques too.

This course offers the most extensive training in archviz, within 8 hours a day, for 20 days. You will learn how to use software, build up an image from a conceptual viewpoint, and develop an artistic eye for composition. Through mastering these skills with the guidance of Brick mentors, you will become an image generalist with a breadth of knowledge and a skillset relevant to the demands of the industry.
