Activity description

Students should bring packed lunch and refreshments if required. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: No formal entry requirements. An interest in illustration, drawing, stories and picture books. Some experience of drawing would be useful. This course would suit beginners, people new to illustration and people with a little more experience. WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: By the end of the course students will have learned/be able to: - gather ideas, images and information in a sketchbook - work on creating illustrations to briefs set by the tutor - plan a storyboard for an illustrated narrative - develop an individual style and experiment with creating characters - design and produce a short illustrated story book HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: Tutor led course. MATERIALS REQUIRED BY STUDENT; APPROXIMATE & ADDITIONAL COSTS: There is no need to buy a lot of expensive materials. Students are asked to bring an A4 sketchbook (bound is best) to the first day’s class, plus a selection of pencils (HB – 5B), coloured pencils, black pens (felt tips, graphic pens) or whatever you enjoy using. Please bring a selection of larger paper – an A3 white paper pad would be good. Other materials which are optional but could be useful are: a small selection of brushes – Chinese brushes are great for watercolour/ink and can be bought quite cheaply in art shops; a dipping pen (size 5 or 6 nibs), black ink (Indian ink or acrylic ink); another colour of ink; watercolours; a plastic container for water; a few old magazines, scissors and a glue stick.
