Be a Part of the Family
“The Low Residency MFA in Illustration Program at the Hartford Art School offers an outstanding environment for growth as a young illustrator. This wonderful program brings together a group of enormously talented Professors and Illustrators from around the country. For me, being in the classroom with such a talented group has taken my illustrations to another level far beyond my expectations. I have found that the more experienced students have taken me under their wing and have provided me with some of the best advice and tutelage that I could ever imagine. When together as a group, there is a certain level of magic that happens and the bonds that we have created with one another are something that will last forever. As a group our ego's are left behind, and we all look out for one another. There is a genuine concern amongst us for helping one another grow as artists and individuals, and that's a wonderful thing!”
Daniel Yagmin Jr. Class of 2009
The interaction between the faculty and the students, and the student’s interactions with each other is the magical part of being a member of our ‘family’.
You will never be alone in your studio again, no matter where you live. You will make friends with about 60 other students, 20 in your studio classes and the rest in your History of Illustration classes, lecture classes, and illustrator presentations and critiques. All of your fellow students will be illustrators, designers, and illustration educators. Now with today’s technologies you will have contacts all over the country that you can reach out to in a second.
The defining factor in each incoming class of people from all over the country, is that they are a group of individuals with the courage to check their egos at the door and plunge into this extraordinary and unique learning experience. Often professional illustrators feel that they must recharge their creative batteries. Some feel isolated geographically and they benefit immeasurably by visiting new cities and meeting major illustrators, art directors, and agents that they could not dream of visiting on their own.
