Our faculty, comprised of professional artists and illustrators, provides practical and timely insights into the art, craft and business of illustration.

Classes are taught by award-winning artists, illustrators and guest lecturers—all leaders in their field. Students are challenged to develop their personal voice across multiple disciplines including print, fashion, entertainment, music motion graphics, gallery installations and toy design. A unique opportunity to study in London allows students a week of studio meetings with illustrators and designers, lectures from curators at the National Portrait Gallery and drawing instruction at the renowned Prince’s Drawing School.
