Description

It is very important for anyone in the field of Illustration or graphic design to be sensitive to the overall look and feel of a design, and the relationship between images, decorative elements and text. This course will explore many ways in which illustration can be incorporated into a design, allowing the artist to create the whole package. Working in a variety of styles inspired by artists of the 19th and 20th centuries, students will make food labels, maps, book covers and interiors, magazine illustrations, posters, shopping bags, and more. Work will be done using many different mediums including gouache (with a demonstration), colored pencil, pen-and-ink (another demo) and watercolor. Students are encouraged to work traditionally. Traditional methods and digital methods may be combined. Beginners to advanced students are welcome. Please visit my website to view a video of the course. NOTE: Assignments vary each semester. Students are asked to bring samples of their work to the first class and some sketching materials.
