In the Illustration Part-Time Program, students learn how to build realistic imagery from the ground up. This class is geared toward classical artists and industry artists alike. Students learn how to understand the visual properties that surround us, not just copy them.

For example, if an artist understands what properties make glass of wine look like a glass of wine, and how the environment around it affects its appearance, they can paint one into their composition convincingly without necessarily setting one up in their studio.

Using traditional materials (graphite, ink, and gouache), students first learn core illustration abilities in black and white. These subjects include layering, blending, and rendering various types of surfaces, such as wood, metal, rusted metal, etc. Students then learn more advanced techniques in color. After establishing core abilities, they work on a series of projects, building in scope and complexity over time.

This class is an ongoing program that has a 1 year curriculum cycle. Students may begin at the beginning of any term and may also choose to continue their ‘apprenticeship’ past the 1 year cycle. For these students, their projects are tailored to further growth and reduce redundancy if necessary.
