Illustrators enhance, explain, decorate, and reinforce the printed word. From magazine covers to children’s books, posters, CD packages, fashion drawings, animated characters, movie storyboards, graphic novels, and web images, the work of the illustrator is everywhere in our visually conscious world.

Students explore the craft of drawing through class exercises, presentations of professional work, and group critiques. An understanding of the expressive and communicative possibilities of all of art’s languages is encouraged.

Students progress from dry media to watercolor to a mixed-media approach.

Illustration is paired with Drawing.
