Children's Book Illustration will explore what might engage and inspire a child's imagination within a picture book. Are you interested in developing your skills in storytelling and children's book illustration? On this course you will explore a variety of techniques used to create images for children's picture books. (Please note that, in the summer term, this course is condensed to 5 weeks and the lower price reflects this.) Over the 8 weeks you will be introduced to methods of creating narratives and telling story. By working through a series of workshops you will try idea generation, storyboarding, layout, use of text and final pieces. Week 1: Idea generation Week 2: Mood boards Week 3: Character development Week 4: Plot ideas Week 5: Storyboarding Weeks 6, 7, 8: Final art works Materials will be provided, but if you have some favourite pencils or materials you would like to use, do bring them. It would also be good to bring along a children's book with illustrations you particularly like.
