Applied Drawing

It all begins with drawing.

Through the Applied Drawing degree, students will develop an understanding of drawing as a means of communication and expression. From mixed media to traditional graphite and charcoal, students are given opportunities to experiment, tell stories, develop characters and work on or off the page. Offering a wide range of classes, this degree is meant for students interested in studio art as well as for students pursuing illustration or cartooning as a profession. Classes include: Mixed Media in Drawing, Book Design and Production, and Drawing for Visual Communication. With a mix of observational studies, narrative assignments and conceptual projects, students’ problem-solving abilities will be pushed and creative excellence realized.
