With the rise of technical art, so comes the rise for the need for technical artists. Ask any tech artist, however, and they'll point to the notoriously finicky nature of finding and teaching tech artists. This panel brings together educators, tech artists, and tech art educators to help educators identify and teach burgeoning tech artists. The panel will also discuss ways for those in the industry to involve themselves in academia to help train the tech artists they need in the field.
