I am already going to a professional school to take a car design course. Do you think I can attend to two schools at the same time?

Yes, you can attend to two schools at the same time. Both of our courses are directed by world-class car designer. Our professional staff’s advices will be beneficial for you to build up your skills in the other school as well. In CDA, you can decide the pace of learning with your own schedule, so it will be easier for you to manage your schedule with the other school.

It depends on the course. We are suggesting the below timeframe from efficiency point.

CDA Total Course =>48weeks

Sketch Technique Course =>24weeks

Quarter View Sketch Lesson =>4weeks

Any restriction for the computer environment?

Windows XP
You need to install Photoshop. (Any paint software is OK)
You need to have a electric Pen Tablet.

What kind of tools do I have to prepare?

The below list is a kind of mandatory tools which you have to prepare.

1. An Aqueous Ballpoint Pen or Felt Tip Pen

* You cannot use pencils and oil-based ballpoint pens for practicing sketch. The reason is that you can draw clean lines easily if you use pencil only by adjusting the pen pressure, which is not suitable for line drawing practice. After practicing by aqueous ballpoint pen or felt tip pen, you will find later on when you use pencil, your line drawing skill is significantly improved.

– For your guidance, our instructors are using

・Aqueous ballpoint pen: Mitsubishi Pencil Micro Rollerball pen Uni-Ball Eye (UB-150)

・Felt-tip pen: Pentel Sign Pen S520

Using Pencil is not allowed in CDA.

2. Graphic Tablet & Pen

You are required to use Photoshop or SAI,and Graphic Tablet and Pen are indispensable tools.

We recommend using Wacom.

3. Photoshop or SAI

If you already use other digital painting software, that is OK as well. (e.g. Sketch Book Pro)

4. Image Scanner or Scanner Apps. 

You will need to submit homework. To have scanning tool is a MUST.
