This course varies in topic from section to section, and is repeatable for 3 credits so long as the thematic topic has changed. As a diverse field that spans print, screen, objects and environments both physical and virtual, Illustration increasingly necessitates the ability to adapt.

Students will engage in problem solving and debate, research and experimentation. Topics and thematics have included: Allegory, Botanical Illustration, Children's Books, Concept Design, Comics, Editorial, Food, Illustrating Literature and Illustration Design, Sci-Fi, etc.

Topic: The Body

This course is Linked to the online course: HUMN-311-S001: Visual Art Seminar: The Body          What is a ‘body’? This course invites students to respond creatively to the differing conceptions and manifestations of a ‘body’, not only human, animal and importantly, non-human beings, but also, other expressions of ‘body’ such as ‘something that ‘embodies or gives concrete reality to a thing’ or as ‘a sensible object in physical space’ or as the ‘denseness, fullness, or firmness of texture’ or the ‘fullness and richness of flavor’ etc. Students will be asked to experiment with various media and produce a portfolio of visual artworks (2D, 3D or performative etc.) that reflects a range of these differing perspectives and complexities of the concept of a ‘body’. Students will also be expected to engage in group discussions, crits and field trips.
