Illustration Workshop Short Course

Course description

By blurring the distinction between illustration and graphic design and allowing type and layout to play an important role, this course will take a broader view of illustration and capture the spirit and enthusiasm of the BA Graphic Design degree course at Central Saint Martins. While there will be the opportunity for some classic illustration and design, you will be encouraged to innovate in your ways of image-making and communication.

The course will emphasise experimentation, the generation of ideas and an awareness of your surroundings. Students will be expected to do a certain amount of work at home as well as practical classroom activities.

The work from this course could be used as part of a portfolio for application to a degree course or professional practice.

Entry requirements: An ability to draw and an interest in illustration.
