They all make appearances in the drawings, paintings, illustrations and comics in “Location as Character.” The works on view explore the aspects of the setting (the interiors and/or the landscapes) that affect narratives and function as strongly as the characters do in a given text. This has been the fodder of writers, filmmakers and composers for generations. Students researched aspects of atmosphere and architecture in relation to the characters in the story.With a commitment to excellence dating back to SVA’s founding in 1947, BFA Cartooning helps students develop a point of view and an individual voice as they master the rudiments of line, color and form in a wide range of media. Studies of art history and world cultures are paired with painting, drawing, storytelling and pictorial problem solving, culminating in the production of a portfolio of original work that presents each student's distinct sensibility. Comic books, graphic novels, children's books, editorial cartoons, theatrical posters, figurative art exhibitions, film and television credits and production design all are powerful vehicles for artists' inner worlds and meaningful contributions to a public forum.
