DESIGN & ILLUSTRATION

DESIGN & ILLUSTRATION

“Design is art people use.” Design and Illustration is a one-year graphic design and illustration program. Careers in the arts are also investigated.   

 

Over the course of the year, students create an art portfolio that can be used to apply to colleges, internships or entry-level graphic design and illustration positions. Students utilize traditional art materials in conjunction with a variety of computer programs and technology, including: Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, digital drawing tablets, digital cameras and scanners to create portfolio-ready works of art. Emphasis is placed on learning and articulating the creative process as well as exploring personal expression.
