Upon completion of the 13 required courses in the Commercial Illustration Program, students will qualify to apply for certification. This process is free of charge and involves sending the student’s final portfolio to a panel of top industry illustrators and client representatives. When the majority of the panel agree that the portfolio is commercially viable the student will receive certification. We recommend the student should plan on six terms to complete the program before applying for a certificate.

In this next level of life drawing students will continue to study the forms and proportions of the human figure, as in Level 1, but with an illustration-based direction. With the life model as a source of reference there will be more emphasis on how figure drawing relates to illustration in a storytelling and narrative capacity. Students will work on exercises involving the human figure while continuing to learn the basics of anatomy and proportion. Various media ranging from graphite, watercolour, pastels, and acrylic will continue to be employed as students begin understanding how the figure relates to the environment it exists in.Note: A supply list will be emailed prior to start of class.
