Beginners Illustration - Draw Your First Story

Course Description

This fun, informal and supportive course is for absolute beginners or returners to Illustration. It will help you enjoy exploring a wide variety of media and techniques to understand how to visualise a range of texts including poetry, stories, and lyrics. You will make Illustrations singly and in a series by extending the potential for visual communication and review great examples of contemporary and historical Illustration while developing your own ideas and themes within your sketchbook.

Location: Camden
