Beginning Illustration | Art 4290
Beginning Illustration always fills up super fast, so this Spring semester, we're offering TWO sections! Learn how to illustrate for children's books, band posters, advertisements, magazines, and more. Contact Professor Dabbs at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you have about ART 4290 and register before these two sections are full!
Motion-Based Illustration | ART 4001 002
Illustrators implement movement to elevate visual narratives and enrapture audiences. Through the exploration of time-based illustration techniques, students amplify their knowledge of digital tools and refine their technical skills. Students analyze the illustrator's role in a design-based production environment and employ professional best practices to develop animated illustrations for diverse venues.
