The Illustration Department fosters students who demonstrate: a skillful understanding of visual communication with an emphasis on drawing as “visual writing”; a strong understanding of color in relation to representation, and the ability to creatively solve and generate visual problems. An understanding of contemporary and historical trends in Illustration is cultivated. The study of Illustration provides a strong example of a liberal arts education within the context of the visual arts because of the wide range of cultural avenues Illustration embraces.
