IILLU 1250 Illustration Tools & Methods

This is a fundamental course designed to familiarize students with many of the tools and methods used by illustrators working in all parts of the field. They will learn the ways that composition, color, value, line and shape express ideas; and the ways that technique, medium, craftsmanship and presentation influence the viewer and characterize successful work. Through demonstrations and experimentation students will develop individualized studio practices that are an ongoing and iterative undertaking that begins in art school and continues throughout an artist's career.
