    Location on this date:  Keeley Street

    Tutors:  Adam Graff
    Our 'Introduction' courses provide a perfect way-in to a creative field.

    Illustration is a form of visual communication which often exists alongside text. Illustrations can help to explain or clarify (or sometimes contradict) the words on a page. Most of all, you could say, they bring the message 'alive', by making it more immediate and exciting. For this reason, illustrations are found across books, magazines, newspapers, websites and social media channels.

    Learn how to create powerful illustrations on our exciting range of Illustration courses.
