VNG experts explained that, in order to become a skilled game artist, students must acquire a basic knowledge of fine arts, painting and graphics, to creatively sharpen their drawing skills using a combination of the digital tools available. Game artists must become sophisticated and have an aesthetic eye while continually refining innovative new art trends in order to be achieve success. At the same time, students must also broaden their understanding of other related fields, such as psychology, anthropology and sociology. 
 
Participants played the exciting Kahoot game and winners received prizes. Then they met face-to-face with VNG experts and learned about recruiting requirements.
