Illustration and Comic Art Online

Through words and image, posters have the unprecedented ability to influence the masses. As an art form and a medium for communication, posters are uniquely effective at expressing ideas, raising awareness, and inspiring change. This course will focus on the application of the poster in service of the "greater good"to speak out in protest, plead for tolerance, invite action, and sway public opinion. Students will briefly examine the poster's historical role as a vehicle for propaganda and advocacy. By examining the ideas, techniques, and stylistic devices employed by poster artists of the past, students will gain inspiration to find their own unique voice and make it heard through their poster work. / Open to students ages 18 and above.
