Introduction to Illustration (Spring 2014)
Illustration and Comic Art
Illustration is essential to the success of the editorial, advertising, publishing, and product packaging industries. During this dynamic class, students will be exposed to a wide cross-section of illustration styles, media, and approaches. The creative process will be discussed, from sketches to final illustration critiques.
Assignments are designed to help students gain an understanding of where, when, and how illustration is used, and to develop the skills needed to create successful illustrations. Students will focus not only on making images and developing their own visual language through creative and conceptual approaches, but also on analyzing imagery.
This class will also include demonstrations of art materials ranging from watercolor and gouache to pen and ink and collage, along with information on topics related to working as a professional illustrator. The instructor will discuss topics including: Business practices; creating an illustration portfolio; self-promotion and networking; working with art directors; and negotiating contracts. A variety of homework assignments will support in-class discussions. / Materials fee of $5 in addition to tuition. / Open to students ages 18 and above.
