The School of Visual Arts is proud to announce its new Emphasis in Drawing and Illustration. The new emphasis launches in the fall of 2015 and involves a coordinated set of courses designed to meet the needs of graduates entering the multi-faceted fields of contemporary drawing and illustration. The new emphasis will replace two current emphases, the Emphasis in Drawing and Emphasis in Illustration.
Two courses currently on the books will continued to be offered. These are Introduction to Illustration and Digital Illustration. All other courses are new, including several courses each designed to immerse students in the methods, concepts, and materials of a key drawing and/or illustration area. The new courses are:
- Introduction to Drawing Concepts and Methodologies
- Sequential Art
- Perceptual Art
- Contemporary Drawing Concepts and Methodologies
- Figure Drawing and Painting
- Portfolio Development
In addition, students are required to take all the core requirements that are required of all students seeking a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in the School of Visual Arts. These include 2D and 3D introductory courses, Basic Drawing, Foundation Design, art history courses, and Professional Practices.
The new drawing and illustration curriculum will be taught by a diverse faculty representing a range of drawing and illustration styles in their own professional work, including both traditional and digital media.
