Lucky Jefferson’s Creative Arts Program was created to foster real-world educational opportunities outside of the classroom and explore the intersection of art and literature.
• Rendering illustrations using diverse mediums (watercolor, animation, ink, etc.)
• Generating creative awareness about published works and Lucky Jefferson
• Typography, pattern making, and different methods of illustrating literature
• Formulating creative concepts and direction for special publication projects
• Digital collaboration with other artists and students
"Working with Lucky Jefferson helped me improve my time management skills, connect with other artists, and create art that I'm proud of! I am so grateful to have had this experience and would encourage other aspiring illustrators to apply and join the team."
Students develop new skills and a deeper understanding of publishing, your own aesthetic or writing style, and concepts learned in the classroom through hands-on application and collaboration. Plus:
Completing an internship with Lucky Jefferson is an experience that can be applied to a capstone, externship, or service-learning.
Illustrations and content are designed around a variety of subjects and themes.
Students work closely with us on print and digital collections.
"I learned so much during my internship with Lucky Jefferson and will definitely use my new skills in my education and future work."
Did we mention that students work together to produce their very own zine!
