Students in our digital illustration program explore many different artistic and technical techniques, equipment and software used in the creation of digital artwork. These include working with scanners, printers and digital drawing tablets, as well as software like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Corel Painter.
In the Digital Illustration program, students can earn a certificate or an endorsement. For additional program information and advising, please contact Greg Kammer.
