Children's book illustration

Release the inner child in yourself and bring those creative and imaginative ideas to life as you delve into the magical world of children’s book illustration. Work with professional writers and illustrators in the creative field to support drawing skills, character design and how to develop a visual narrative, working towards your very own children’s picture book.

Move designs from thumbnail sketches onto the computer using the latest Adobe CC software and even learn how to draw with a Wacom tablet. Work on creative briefs, sharing ideas and collaborating with other students. Gain confidence in how to pitch ideas, what’s needed for commercial commissions and how to successfully move into the industry as a freelance children’s book illustrator.
