A two year diploma combines traditional illustrative media, digital media and the business skills to give the independent artist the expertise necessary to succeed in the rapidly changing world of illustration. In addition to learning about traditional art forms such as drawing, painting, mixed media, printmaking, sculpture and digital media, students will create and register their own small business, have a working website, and have the accounting, marketing and revenue generating skills to succeed as entrepreneurial artists. Graduates go on to work in children’s and comic book illustration, spot and advertising illustration and the burgeoning industry of concept art for TV, film and game animation.
