A minor in Illustration provides students with the fundamental principles and contextual understanding required in being an illustrator. With the exception of a Liberal Studies component, courses are studio-based, where competency in draftsmanship is a necessity. Students engage in visual problem-solving, text-to-image translations and media exploration, while developing individual methodologies and an awareness of contemporary issues that affect the practice. Assignments include life and observational drawing, editorial, advertising and book illustration.
