This class is live online via Zoom.

On this course ,we will look at the basic skills and theory behind picture book illustration and writing. The course will cover plot and character, theme and narrative and how these can be represented through illustrations and text for younger children. It will consider style and type of illustrations and give learners an insight into different techniques and media to use in illustrations. Finally it will give learners an overview of the different options when it comes to publication.

Learners do not need to have any previous experience or particular skill in drawing to undertake the course, as other ways of visual communication will be explored.
