Jon Andrews earned B.S. and M.A. degrees in Graphic Design, with the M.A. focusing on the integration of 3-dimensional art with graphic design. He continues to work in both the studio and design fields outside of his teaching responsibilities, freelance designing and creating 3D artwork for local and regional exhibitions. Jon teaches courses in composition and design, lettering, book arts, and sculpture in a design program that fuses a studio art component with a graphic design core. These interests have fit Jon for a teaching position that crosses the boundaries of each field and helps students see connections in all of design thus strengthening their sensitivities and abilities. Jon has authored two of the Foundations courses and is developing a Lettering course.
Jon designs for several ministries and public arts organizations. Jon has also participated in Living Gallery sculpture and painting production. He recently designed and constructed a sculpture installation for BJU's Museum & Gallery. Jon has a passion for illustration, evidencing an interest in storytelling with most of his 3D work. Jon also enjoys good music and theatre and collaborates with others in the design and creation of both.
Jon desires to help his students begin writing their story, to help open their eyes to the wonder and possibilities in the world around them, and to help find their voice while enjoying the creative process as image-bearers of Christ. He hopes to aid students in finding ways to work for the eternal in design, art, and life by his own influence as they develop into intelligent, concerned, and kind ambassadors of the Creator, beautifying one corner of the world at a time.
