The MFA in Illustration Practice prepares artists to elevate their artistic and business abilities, blend media within new cultural contexts, and integrate research and critical analysis into their work. Students find new directions for the practice in the 21st century, actively initiate projects, and revisit their creative process while awakening their abilities to chart their own course as entrepreneurs.
The Baltimore Child Abuse Center [BCAC] asked Illustration Practice students to think conceptually as well as practically in a project designed to get the center's message out to the Baltimore community. Students thought how to effectively yet creatively get the messages to the public, as well as what their solution will look like, where their solution would be seen, what exciting materials would enhance their idea. Student solutions can be found here.
