Illustration is the innovative practice of bringing imagination to life. Indiana Wesleyan University's Illustration major is focused on the premise of artistic collaboration, the creative process that takes place between student and professor. The objectives of the partnership are centered on the requisites of drawing, painting, and design to craft imagery for the written narrative. Our students are prepared to utilize both traditional and digital media as means to embrace the artistic process for the purpose of pictorial application.

Your experience with us will cultivate your signature style, instill aesthetic competence, and empower your ability to implement convincing, imaginative sensibilities with which to communicate in the global marketplace. And while you're here-at one of the fastest-growing Christian universities in the country-you'll be part of God's unfolding story as you set out to discover God's grand design for your life.
