College Art/Creative Writing
I taught illustration at Mississippi State University for nine years. My students worked with techniques and concepts on a very finished level.
The program I have in mind for an artist-in-residence program is to take the students from a written text, sketch out ideas for the illustrated page and to proceed to finished art.
Through this exercise, the students gain the experience of taking a written concept such as a narrative and creating a visual world where the characters can exist.
