Discover illustration in a relaxed learning environment of exploration and development

This six-week course is a fantastic creative opportunity giving you an insight on what it’s like to make illustrations. You will be given exercises and projects that provide an understanding of how to plan and make illustrations.

The group will be taught in an informative and supportive atmosphere, and you will be encouraged to share your work with others and discuss your results. 

This course will run on Tuesdays from 6:30–9pm for six weeks.

You can progress to the next Illustration course or Book Illustration to begin to develop an illustration technique of your own, or investigate the other Art or Printmaking courses at Reading College.

What I'll learn

The learning atmosphere will be one of exploration and development with the encouragement of a practicing illustrator alongside your peers. You will be introduced to a range of different materials provided on the course and encouraged to experiment.

You will gain an understanding of how illustrations work, and an overview of the broad range of contexts for illustration. You will explore your own style and experiment with a range of methods that you can use in illustration projects. 

 

How I'll learn

The group will be taught in an informative and supportive atmosphere, and you will be encouraged to share your work with others and discuss ideas and approaches in critiques. You should bring in examples of illustration work that you admire in week one.

You can progress to the next Illustration course to begin to develop an illustration portfolio, or begin an illustrated book project of your own.

 

How I'll be assessed

There are no formal assessments for this course.

 

Entry Requirements
