The drawing and basic art skills learned at Qantm College will also enable you to do other jobs such as; modeller, texture artist, lighting designer, colour stylist, concept artist, story board artist etc. In short, drawing and general art skills developed at Qantm College give you more options for employment at the end of your course.
