Pre-College Studio Intensive: Illustration (in person)

In this week-long intensive, high school students explore the major of illustration.

Bridging the gap between artistic expression and real-world applications, students learn the methods that contemporary illustrators use to create eye-catching images for books, magazines, posters, and products. Assignments and in-class activities focus on visual storytelling, working collaboratively, and channeling creativity on a deadline. Using traditional methods along with the latest software, teens hone their conceptual thinking skills alongside their drawing abilities to build their illustration portfolios. / This class will have an unsupervised 30 minute lunch break. / Students will have access to Adobe Creative Cloud software throughout the class. / Materials fee of $50 included in course tuition.

Open to students ages 15-18. MCAD strictly adheres to these age guidelines and is unable to allow exceptions. Please review our complete Teen Policies as well as our General Policies prior to completing your registration.
