Intermediate Illustration introduces students to projects that serve as the building blocks for their continued growth toward understanding the field of illustration. Traditional forms of media, like pen and ink, colored pencil, watercolor and gouache will be presented with the goal of achieving professional quality outcomes. The class will also work with digital art media and photo-reference in conjunction with the digital lab to produce finished artwork. This exposure to advanced methods and materials will further enhance the quality of student work.
