Bachelor of Fine Arts, Art Education - Illustration
The Art Education – Illustration major combines the organizational and social skills of a teacher with the technical and conceptual skills of an illustrator. In addition to the classroom-centric classes all Art Education majors take, Illustration-track students focus on the art of visual storytelling.
Above all, illustrators are communicators, and here you’ll learn how to communicate with your art. You’ll learn technique, visual perception, conceptual problem solving and how to use a variety of the tools of the trade: paint, charcoal, pen and ink, and the latest in computer software to name but a few.
After establishing a strong foundation in your preliminary art and design classes, you’ll get to dive into what illustration is all about with classes in human and animal anatomy, figure drawing, and ultimately developing and promoting your own portfolio. These skills, combined with your classroom experience, prepare you for a successful future split between two passions: teaching and art.
