About the Course
A course all about children's book illustrating.
The classes will introduce you to the world of children’s books.
With guidance you will create your own illustrated story for children, focusing on the internal workings of a picture book.
The course is suitable for everyone from beginners to the more experienced wanting to build their portfolio, and writers who want to learn how to illustrate.
It is also ideal for anyone who wants to explore the writing and illustration process so that they can create unique work for family and friends.
On this course you will:
- have a combination of group and one-to-one tutorials
- learn about character development, visual voice, story structure, sequence, pagination and page design
- define your audience
- get advice on how to get published.
What will you gain?
You will leave the course with an understanding of how to create stories and illustrate children’s picture books. This is a very practical course involving drawing, writing and design.
Entry requirement: No drawing or writing experience is required. An idea for a storybook is useful, but not essential.

Brilliant course. I enjoyed how thorough our tutor was in making sure we were happy. The schedule was well-defined, and I was able to get a large amount of work done that I am more than happy with. This has made me consider the MA Illustration course taught by the same tutor.
