As an Illustration major at one of the best art schools in the country, you will learn how to creatively translate conceptual ideas and emotions into visual imagery. Original thinking, the ability to formulate and express clear, relevant thoughts, and problem solving are core skills we teach in our Illustration program. You also will master a broad array of materials and techniques, ranging from pencils, acrylics, oils, and inks to contemporary collage, photographic, and digital processes. You will develop and complete projects in areas such as storytelling and advertising, editorial, and print illustration.
Draw inspiration for your work from field trips to professional art studios and advertising agencies as well as from interactions with our talented visiting artists. Share your portfolio with employers, illustrators, and designers, who are invited each year to the Institute.
