Exploring Illustration

Exploring Illustration

Central Saint Martins
Taught by
Ann Course


This course takes a broad view of illustration for those who have an interest in the subject, or who wish to improve and develop established ideas. The course will capture the spirit and enthusiasm of the BA degree course at Central Saint Martins, with an emphasis on experimentation, the generation of ideas and an awareness of our surroundings. The development of practical skills and techniques through workshops will be interlinked with group projects and constructive group crits. Students will leave with a broader scope of illustration, a variety of approaches - and exhilarated!
