Course content

Develop your own authorial voice on this unique illustration course. You’ll learn to see your work as an evolving practice, as you challenge and re-evaluate your personal visual language with the help of experienced practitioners.

At the heart of this studio-based course is an examination of authorship and storytelling within illustration. You’ll take part in workshops in skills like screen printing, creative writing and bookbinding, while working on longer-term projects in your choice of media. Taking an entrepreneurial approach, you’ll consider the outlets for your work and develop your professional practice. At the end of the course, you’ll mount a professional presentation of work from your negotiated project.
