Illustration Academy Information; 2010 Schedule

The Illustration Academy will be held in two locations using the same schedules.

Location Two: Richmond, VA.

The Illustration Academy's 2010 summer program will be held in two locations, Kansas City and Richmond, Virginia. The Illustration Academy is now operating as a Special Program within The Art Department's (TAD) Illustration Major. The 2010 Illustration Academy will be held in the TAD studios (Pods) that are being developed to accommodate the immersion component of TAD.

Students will have their choice of either location, Kansas City or Richmond, as positions are available. The same stellar professionals will make up The Illustration Academy Faculty. It will be a major advantage to have the Academy in our own space as we will finally have total control.

  1. Atending the Illustration Academy is such a huge dream for me, that I set it as a primary goal to be accomplished in my life... I'm starting to save the money, it's overwhelming in my conditions but I know it will change my life... perhaps in two years I'll finally achieve it!

  2. Rafael,

    I wish you the best of luck in getting things in order to attend the Academy. I can't speak of my career without acknowledging the life changing impact that the Illustration Academy and it's faculty have had on me. I'll look forward to meeting you when you are able to make it happen!


  3. Oh man, I just can't believe that you answered me! 8>O
    I'm deeply touched by your sensibility, and you know above my understanding, what does it mean to have your talent forged under the inspiring and apotheotical cirscumstances that the Illustration Academy provides. And to be honest, I dream SO MUCH about studying with you!
    Well, I'll write you an e-mail, hope you 'll be able to read it - until soon!

  4. Hey again!
    I don't know if I sent my e-mails for the correct address, but I just hope I did!
    All the best,

  5. Rafael,

    Thank you for the email and the kind words. I am looking forward to meeting you some time in the near future.

    best regards,
