We will briefly explore the range of both hard skills (art history, composition, design, color theory, principles of animation, etc.) and soft skills (public speaking, conflict resolution, performance management, etc.) that all Art Directors must call upon in the course of their responsibilities. Furthermore, we will reveal how being an Art Director means caring about a lot more than just "Art."
