What Students Gained from Our Illustration Courses

I truly enjoyed studying online. I am an independent learner and I like going at my own pace. I loved having the freedom and flexibility to work on my studies when it best fit my schedule.

Kristy Ren-Hayzlett

Associate Degree in Illustration

My goals are to use what I have learned at Sessions College and apply it to my personal business as a digital illustrator. I have already gotten a few clients throughout the school semester and I am currently in the process of working on a book deal with a self-published author as an illustrator.

Melissa Panzarella

Associate Degree in Illustration

I had thought about a degree in Digital Arts for a long time but couldn’t commit to another BA or an AA degree. The Sessions Professional Certificate has been perfect for me so far in terms of timing, flexibility, and cost.
