Drawing/Painting/Comics and Graphic Novels - Online

You bring your creative interests – traditional and non-traditional drawing and painting techniques, comics and graphic novels, and more – and our incredible faculty of artists, designers, and scholars will work one-on-one with you to push your skills to the next level.   You may choose to work in a variety of media-  wet and dry media, ink, pencil, charcoal, collage, observational drawing, storyboarding, or a combination of different materials. The course will include online demonstrations geared to your passions, visiting artist presentations, online museum resources, as well as time for self-directed work and comprehensive faculty advising.   You’ll engage in discussions and critiques with a vibrant online community of other students from throughout the country and around the world, create portfolio-quality work, and receive comprehensive guidance on developing competitive applications for college admissions to art and design programs.
