SVA Illustration Summer Residency 2013

The Illustration Summer Residency program at the School of Visual Arts is in its sixth (!) year, and this time around we're actually doing two sessions. One was in the month of June, and the other one is happening now, throughout July.

The residency is a one month illustration boot-camp that includes classes in illustration portfolio (taught by Viktor Koen), painting and drawing (usually by Greg Crane, this July by Kelynn Z. Alder), and Sequential / Narrative art (by yours truly). During the month they also have guest lecturers and studio visits, and immerse themselves into the New York City art world.

In my class, we are doing short picture stories in-class, and discuss interesting books on the topic, including graphic novels, children's books and reportage drawings.

The month culminates in an Open House exhibition, this time it will be August 8th, 6-9pm, in the lobby of 141 West 21st street. One night only! Hope to see you there!

For more info, follow the residency on twitter and facebook, or contact program coordinator Keren Moscovitch.
