    Gemini School of Visual Arts-Austin TX-Thread

    Hello everyone, here's the start of our official thread!

    About Gemini School
    Welcome to the Gemini School of Visual Arts & Communication-where “We Turn Talent into a Profession”. For over 20 years, Gemini School has prepared students for successful careers as commercial artists in advertising agencies, videogame development studios, publishing houses, film/special effects studios, corporations and as fine artists around the world.

    Our graduates can be found working both full-time and as freelancers for studios like Disney, Electronic Arts and Sony to advertising agencies (Publicis, BBDO, TBWA-Chiat Day, Ayzenberg) and in national publications including Maxim, Popular Science, GamePro, EGM and Business Week.

    The curriculum is based on the essential skills of drawing and painting--and designed for the student who is focused, creative and passionate about their career. Once essential skills are mastered, students move into our intense, industry driven digital media program. In classes taught by professional, working artists, students explore “real world” solutions to creative problems while mastering the latest software and techniques in digital painting, concept art, photography, modeling and more.

    As students enter their final year at Gemini, we guide them through our Career Services program. From special industry-only networking events to portfolio preparation, internship opportunities and job search strategies, students are counseled every step of the way as they transition into the workforce.

    We encourage you to explore our website @ www.geminischool.com and see the results of our program in the student and faculty galleries.
    And keep an eye out for the launch of our new website in November 2008!

    North America needs more schools like this! Good luck to you, and do visit if you're ever in Toronto.

    Summer Workshops!

    Hi everyone, We've just announced our Summer Workshop Series for 2009. Some of the basic classes may not be advanced enough for this group--but the Digital Painting with Corel Painter workshop is being taught by Roger Barcilon. He's an Award of Excellence winner from the book Painter (Ballistic Publishing) and soon to be listed as a Corel Master artist.

    Workshop descriptions, prices and registration info is here:

    Cheers,Cynthia

    I live not too far from Gemini and have visited y'all on one occasion and fell in love with the teachers and the art. I am super excited about the summer workshop and am doing my best to schedule it in now!

    Can you tell me anything about the Concept Art workshop? That is the one I am most interested in! The Digital Painting workshop sounds ever more exciting! However, marching season starts on the 1st of August so that's pretty much a no go at this moment.

    How quickly are these classes filling up? I want to sign up today, but, like I said, I have to figure things out. Man I'm cannot contain my excitement!!!

    Are there any plans in the works to offer any other lengths of study (e.g. 1, 2, or 3 year program) other than the stated 4 year Diploma in Visual Arts & Communication and specialized workshops?

    You guys sound great and I'm thoroughly impressed with the student works, but the $73K pricetag for the diploma nags me quite a bit in terms of time and and money involved.

    Hi there, I'm going to reply to both earlier posts.

    1. Summer Workshops. The class size is limited and we're getting a good early response, so I would say if you want to take the class--especially concept art-go ahead a register. It will cover basic character and environment and will be taught by a professional concept artist working in Austin. If you want more details, feel free to email me directly at cynthia@geminischool.com. We hope to see you over the summer!

    2. Full time course length. Right now, we're getting a lot of requests for continuing education, so we've started with Summer Workshops. In the future, we may be able to offer a shorter version of the program, but we believe that a student must have a solid drawing and painting foundation. So that has to be solid before we'd move someone into the last half of the program. Having said that, since you live in Texas, I would suggest visiting us and bringing your portfolio. No pressure, but at least the director could see what you do and give you an informed answer. Next time you're in Austin, let us know--we can set something up. And, we are having an open house on Sat. Feb 28th if you're interested. My direct email is cynthia@geminischool.com if you want to ask further questions Thanks for the interest!
