We will read and illustrate a novel, using the text as direct reference for our images in the tradition of illustrators of the 20th century. Class will be broken up into discussion about the reading and sharing our illustrations. The final product will be painting a cover for the book. We’ll also have a chance to chat with faculty and students from the art department about education and career opportunities for art students.

Residential students will live in a residence hall on campus, supervised by live-in counselors. All counselors are undergraduate students trained in the supervision of minors and background-checked. Evening recreational activities may include use of the campus recreational center, board games, and trips to locations on campus or in town.
