Every illustrator is a storyteller at heart. That’s why the MassArt Illustration program emphasizes understanding character development and narrative techniques.

The Illustration program teaches BFA students how to master the art of visual storytelling. Learning from professional illustrators, you will develop your drawing skills and learn to transform ideas and narratives into images that can be reproduced in print, electronic format, and time-based media. By graduation, Illustration majors produce a body of work that expresses their ideas and showcases their artistic and storytelling skills, preparing them for success in the professional world of illustration.
