In a BFA Illustration program, you would learn to translate ideas into images in media including picture books, graphic novels, hand lettering, editorial and advertising illustrations, toy designs, animations and surface and display design.

In this video we took a few pieces from an Ashcan Studio student, Angelo’s art portfolio to inspire you as you’re making your own art portfolio. Angelo was accepted into the Illustration programs at the top art schools Pratt Institute, The School of Visual Arts and The Rhode Island School of Design.
