Much of the artwork produced worldwide is made for commercial purposes. This art is sometimes called commercial or applied art. Students learn the concepts and techniques of this type of art in the Visual Communications area of the Palomar College Art Department.

Design and drawing classes in this area are tailored toward the practical and efficient production of imagery intended for commercial uses.

Illustration courses prepare students to draw and paint images to be used for editorial and product illustration.

Both Graphic Design and Illustration programs incorporate digital media in their courses of study. Software applications that are used include Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and AfterEffects, Corel Painter, Autodesk Maya, and Pixologic ZBrush. Courses in digital arts are meant to supplement, not replace, hand fabrication concepts and skills, and the prerequisites and/or recommended preparations reflect the skills needed to succeed in the variety of digital courses offered in our programs.

Course offerings in Illustration

Please note that courses in Graphic Design and Illustration, which include our digital coursework, use a D or an I after their number to distinguish them from other Art courses. They are listed under Art-Design and Art-Illustration in the Class Schedule.
