Drawing for Illustrators (All Levels)

Over this 10-week course, published author/illustrators Jane Porter and Sophie Ambrose will take you through all the steps from developing your initial idea to putting together a dummy picture book with a sample of artwork.

What The Course is About:

Tutors: Jane Porter (first half of term); Sophie Ambrose (second half of term)

This practical but inspiring course will help you hone your drawing skills, working from observation, reference and imagination. You will create a visual database of characters, creatures and settings to use in future projects. We’ll explore emotions, body language, detail, texture and colour, following an overall theme each term. The theme for Summer 2023 is ‘Gardens, Parks and the Great Outdoors’.

This course is for you if:

  • You’d like to draw more, but find it hard to make time
  • You’d like to bring more depth and life to your illustrations
  • You’d like to have fun experimenting with new ways of drawing

Materials Required:

For the first session, please bring in whatever drawing materials you have, pencils, coloured pencils, pens and paper of your choice. Further materials can be purchased from the school shop at competitive prices.

Previous Experience:

Suitable for: all levels, but some drawing experience would be useful. Ideal as a follow-on from ‘Learn to Draw’ class, but also useful for illustrators looking to refresh their approach.
