Illustration


Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The illustration program teaches students how to create pictorial interpretations of ideas or narratives for reproduction in print, electronic, and time-based media. Students research and develop ideas, characters, stories, and settings.

As a result of the program’s emphasis on drawing from observation, students learn to render images in a range of media and acquire skills in developing a variety of visual concepts. They also learn to use electronic media to explore compositional elements of time, movement, and sound.

Coursework culminates in a degree project consisting of a body of images revealing the student’s emerging style and personal point of view. Graduating seniors exhibit their project work and present their portfolio to invited professionals from publishing, editorial, advertising, institutional, and corporate markets.

All faculty members either work as freelance illustrators or run their own illustration businesses.
