Summer Residency in Illustration

I'm teaching Visual Narrative / Graphic Storytelling in this great summer program at SVA again. Last year it was a lot of fun! We'll be working on short picture stories and comics, and exploring the possibilities of visual storytelling in general. So don't hesitate and sign up! Contact info below.

Summer Residency in Illustration
Illustration and Visual Narrative
June 1 – July 2

This studio residency offers artists the opportunity to explore the wealth of resources available to professional illustrators in New York City while developing a portfolio of work that embodies personal vision.

With guidance from successful, award-winning illustrators, participants will complete a body of work comprised of images created from assigned projects, as well as those self-directed by the artist, with the aim of showcasing personal style and aesthetic direction. The goals are to advance to the next level of artistic practice and to attain an enhanced position in the illustration marketplace.

Faculty critiques—individual and group—and visits to professional studios will complement independent work; together these initiatives form an intense program that fosters professional growth and an expansion of personal voice.

Special lectures by guest artists, gallery directors, publishers and art directors are designed to provide additional insight regarding the realities of a career in illustration. Participants have access to a digital facility, as well as the opportunity to work in a variety of mediums. The program culminates in an exhibition.

Faculty and lecturers have included Marshall Arisman, Paul Buckley, Gregory Crane, Paul Hoppe, Viktor Koen and Cheryl Phelps.
Note: A portfolio is required for review and acceptance to this program. For further information please contact Keren Moscovitch, coordinator, Summer Residency Programs, Division of Continuing Education, at 212.592.2188; fax: 212.592.2060; e-mail:
