While you develop your talent, both conceptually and technically, we aim to help you achieve a deeper understanding of your role as a visual interpreter and of the importance of adapting to market needs and to a developing field.

We will encourage you to develop a unique visual signature and a compelling visual voice that effectively communicates with intended audiences; both essential for success in professional practice.
