Introduction to Illustration

Explore the illustration process as your instructor guides you from ideation to freehand sketching and ultimately creating a final illustration. Experiment with a variety of materials and styles, including traditional and digital illustration techniques. As you begin to craft your illustrative point of view throughout the course, you will also learn more about the landscape of contemporary illustration. This course will not focus on the development of observational drawing skills. All levels are welcome, even those with no prior drawing experience.

"From first to last, Molly is an excellent teacher: her syllabus is clear and purposeful; her assignments make sense for the course subject and are interesting to tackle; she has a knack for giving honest and supporting feedback during class discussions, as well as in one on one conferences, that encourage and motivate her students. Outstanding." – Student with Molly O'Connell
