Illustration is visual communication through image making and is all around us every day in many different forms communicating ideas, messages and stories, grabbing our attention, decorating our world and helping to explain when words are not enough.
It’s made and used in so many differing ways that it’s sometimes hard for people to know exactly what illustration is and how it is created. This course offers a hands-on introduction to the subject, giving you the opportunity to explore the different aspects of illustration and offering you a flavour of what it’s like to study it and work as an illustrator.
