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
Basic materials will be provided, such as pencils, paper, inks, paints and brushes but you should bring a sketch book. Those with more experience are welcome to bring your own items if you have preferences, such as good quality brushes, materials etc.
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
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 1.
