Design for America
Design for America (DFA) is an award-winning nationwide network of interdisciplinary student teams and community members using design to create local and social impact. We teach human centered design to young adults and collaborating community partners through extra-curricular, university based, student led design studios tackling national challenges in Education, Health, Economy and Environment.
Our vision: To create a family for the MICA Illustration Club department by connecting MICA students studying Illustration, providing materials and opportunities for them, and creating an open and collaborative environment. We are dedicated to changing the Illustration student experience, students of all levels are welcome to join us for social events, student panels, juried exhibitions, and more!
MICA Design League
The Design League aims to expand students' knowledge and interest in design, going beyond the classroom experience by offering peer-to-peer conversations and workshops. All are welcome and encouraged to contribute.
National Art Educators Association (NAEA)
The NAEA welcomes all students, whether they plan to teach or not. We plan many exciting workshops throughout the year as well as an annual one-day conference with surrounding schools. We become a close community and further our experiences as leaders and art educators.
A printmaking club for everyone! All majors invited. We present school-wide printmaking demos of all sorts (screenprint, monoprint, etc), along with demos specifically for the club. We create pop-up shops and plan to raise money for bulk supply orders and visiting artist lectures.
Sequential Arts Club
Our goal is to provide an outlet for MICA students interested in making comics and other forms of sequential art and visual journalism. We encourage and critique each others' work, as well as produce several zines and anthologies of our work over the course of the year.
Students of Sustainability (SOS)
Students of Sustainability (SOS) is an organization of environmentally conscience students that, through collaborative visual campaigns, campus-wide events, and peer teach-ins, strives to make sustainability a key aspect of MICA's identity and mission.
