Our low residency format provides working illustrators, educators, and freelance illustrator/designers an opportunity to work with the best illustration educators in the United States. Our students pursue an MFA in Illustration while continuing with their careers, lives and commitments. Over a timespan of two years and three summers, our students refine their skills and techniques, expand their creative intellect, and shape their illustration business into a career. The fall and spring sessions meet for one week at select off-site locations where substantial numbers of high-profile illustrators work and reside (New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas). Guest professionals present their work to our students and conclude with an open discussion relative to their work and the illustration profession at large. Students share in the expertise of these presenters and gain insight into the similarities and differences illustrators face in different markets and regions of the country. Application deadline: Rolling admissions; a maximum of 20 students are accepted each year with classes starting in July. More information can be found at: www.hartfordillustrationmfa.org.
