Drawing and Illustration

Every technique at your disposal

Illustration and drawing students use both traditional and digital media, from graphite to Adobe Creative Suite, and have access to Herron’s painting, sculpting, printmaking, and woodworking facilities.

Develop your artistic voice

You will learn how to process everything through your own unique perspective, born out of your experiences and tastes, an ever-evolving sense of style which you will invent and develop over time.
