At the MFA in Illustration Practice At MICA, we believe that a grounding in illustration history and an understanding of contemporary illustration practice are essential to an illustrator's education. The first year of our program places emphasis on critical thinking, research and writing about illustration, in an effort to enable the students to understand the world of illustration that they place themselves in. Our students' writings are regularly published on the Norman Rockwell Museum's Rockwell Center for American Visual Studies website.
