Illustration Online Intensive July 20-24, 2020
Use hand-drawing techniques to express yourself visually and tell a story. Experimentation is strongly encouraged as students develop their own style and learn about the methods and materials of illustrators.
THIS IS A GOOD CONCENTRATION IF YOU: Draw on napkins. Use drawings to explain ideas. Keep a stack of comics under your bed.
The focus of this course is on concept and individual expression with continuous development of technical skills. Demonstrations and discussions on the creative process and media will be provided. Students will be given a series of assignments that will allow them to explore the different types of illustration via creative thinking and problem solving.
This one week course will help you explore the wide open field of Illustration. In this course, you will:
- Develop ideation, drawing and rendering skills
- Explore various disciplines of illustration
- Create work for a stronger college admissions portfolio
- Meet experienced industry professionals
- Learn under the direction of CCS faculty
The Illustration Online Intensive lead instructor will be CCS Adjunct Professor, Meredith Miotke. Meredith is a pattern designer and illustrator whose client list includes Converse, New York Times, Sperry, and Popular Science.
Each morning and afternoon students will connect with Zoom calls for small-group live video chats with demos and lectures that teach industry ideation, drawing, and rendering techniques. Students will work on assignments independently, create artwork, and build their portfolios. Students will also get one-on-one attention from their professor and admissions professionals throughout the week. A tentative schedule is attached.
You will have the amazing opportunity to interact with nationally known artists and gain insights into various disciplines within the field of illustration. The week will culminate with reviews by CCS Illustration Chair Don Kilpatrick
After a week of the 2020 Illustration Online Intensive program, students will know if this is the right career path for them and be well prepared to take the first steps toward that future.
