About the Course
This course introducing Illustration explains the processes involved in working to a brief. This includes generating ideas, visual research and finding visual solutions. You will investigate different materials and techniques, explore audiences and learn to communicate visually within a range of formats in publishing, editorial and design. In addition to sketchbooks where you will continue to develop drawing skills, you will keep a learning log where your visual research and creative enquiry will be documented.
You will be encouraged to study and learn from historical and contemporary practice within art, design and illustration to gain an informed, critical understanding of the context in which your own imagery is made.
The Open College of the Arts is a non-profit educational charity offering arts education through open and flexible distance learning methods. You will receive support from a one-to-one tutor who is also an arts practitioner and you will become part of a thriving UK and international student community.
