- Course Goals: To familiarize students with the field of illustration including its basic working methods, industry practices, basic history, and philosophies. Artistic techniques will be taught as well, however, this is a class focused on concept generation, and the creation of thoughtful illustrations, as opposed to a drawing or painting technical course.
