The Illustration Department’s Fall Session


In The Illustration Department’s Fall Session, 8 attendees will meet once a week for five weeks with Executive Art Director, Giuseppe Castellano.

Fall Session classes will take place on October 12, October 19, October 26, November 2, and November 9. Each class begins at 9:00 PM EST.

In Week 1, we will review 3 portfolio pieces from the attendees. Giuseppe will speak to each attendee’s strengths and areas of improvement.

An assignment will be provided. 

In Week 2, we will review the attendees’ sketches for the assignment. Through live demonstrations, Giuseppe will discuss do’s and don’ts in character design, composition, and more.

After week 2, attendees will proceed to final art.

In Week 3, Giuseppe will give a presentation on color. Using examples from the masters, Giuseppe will explain why color is the most underutilized tool in Illustration.

Attendees will continue to work on their final pieces. All pieces will be due before Week 4.

In Week 4, we will review the attendees’ final pieces for the assignment. Among other topics, Giuseppe will touch on websites, portfolios, and marketing for illustrators.

Attendees will be encouraged to revise their pieces before Week 5.

In Week 5, a special guest will join our discussion. We’re thrilled to say that our guest for the Fall Session is Kyle Webster! We can’t wait to hear what he has to say about his brushes, working as an illustrator, and much more!

All classes are 90-minutes long.

All discussions will occur through Google Hangouts—a simple web chat platform. If you have any questions, please email Sarah at
