What I'll learn
You will learn about your own approach to illustration and the notion of style, and discover how storytelling can be achieved through pictures with sequential illustration. The learning atmosphere will be one of exploration and development.
You will gain an understanding of how book illustrations enhance reading and add a different experience. You will extend your own ability to create or enhance storytelling through pictures and develop an understanding of creating a concept for an illustrated book.
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 continue with an illustrated book concept of your own.
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 2 examples of illustrated books that you admire in week 1.
