Visiting artists to the Illustration Program engage our students and community with free, public lectures and artist talks that expose the full scope of diversity in the Illustration field.
National & International Artists
We host guests from across the nation and throughout the world. These artists represent and exhibit traditional forms of illustration such as editorial, publishing, animation, gaming, children’s book, fine art, design, comics, and film. Additionally, they share projects that demonstrate how the definition and practice of Illustration is evolving.
These events provide a unique opportunity for students, faculty, alumni, and local friends to gather under one roof as they learn, socialize, and then carry the conversation into classrooms and studios.
If you are interested in viewing past events, videos can be found at YouTube, iTunes U and on DVD in the SF CCA library, as noted below.
