Ringling College Students Awarded 33 Entries Into 2013 Society of Illustrators
February 19, 2013 - Ringling College of Art and Design has once again been awarded one of the top number of entries into the 2013 Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition. Of over 8,000 pieces entered from colleges and universities throughout the U.S. and Canada, only 272 were selected, including 33 from Ringling College students. Since 2008, Ringling College has had a total of 162 winning pieces in the competition, which is the largest number from any college.
Ringling College Illustration Department Head, Jeff Schwartz, had this to say about the Illustration program and its students, “Our students have a strong foundation in observational drawing and painting. Once a student gains a level of mastery with these fundamental skills they begin to investigate and develop a personal approach. Our illustration classes, taught by leading illustrators of varying disciplines, push the students to build a body of work that demonstrates a broad but deep skill set. We match image with storytelling. The Ringling College Illustration department offers students a community environment within our program. We know our students well, we spend countless hours with them both in and out of class. We build relationships that last beyond the walls of the college.”
