Description

This course is part of Session II (Featured Topics) of RISD Advanced Program for High School Students.

Illustration crosses all boundaries in materials and messaging: The common unifier is the identifiable style and voice of the artist. In this class students learn how to create a compelling narrative from their own story, identity and viewpoint. Lectures and research emphasize historical and contemporary artists, as well as process and creative practice. Students develop effective concepts, characters and narrative through a variety of materials such as graphite, pen and ink, collage and painting. Genres of communication such as social commentary and fiction are investigated to further develop personal areas of interest, process and style. In this course, expressive solutions to visual problems are emphasized through a rigorous sketchbook practice and the development of final concepts.
