Expand the World at Your Fingertips

The world of drawing is much broader than you might think. Pursue hands-on roles in any number of traditional careers (freelance artwork, print production, and various on-paper illustration projects, of course). But, with today’s technology, illustration roles in film, television, social media, and even video games are in higher demand than ever before.

Engage a variety of mediums including pencil, ink, charcoal, and digitally-based platforms. Explore your talents in still life, street art, portraits, landscape, and on-screen illustration. Pursue your passion without limitation, with a Bachelor of Arts in Art with a concentration in drawing, from NGU.

What Can I Do with a Concentration in Drawing?

The art of drawing offers a unique and powerful form of expression, allowing you to convey emotions, capture moments, and bring imagination to life.

With a pencil in hand, you have the ability to create intricate details, evoke feelings, and communicate ideas visually. Embrace the world of drawing as you explore different techniques, experiment with various subjects, and share your artistic vision with others, leaving a lasting impression through the strokes of your pen or pencil.
