The programme aims to develop skills that are essential within the area of contemporary illustration based on the needs of local and national industry. The course prides itself on forward thinking and new approaches to working with narrative visualisation through a host of personal and client based projects. The practical techniques that are delivered to students develop both traditional and digital skills with the emphasis on drawing and visualisation techniques as a foundation for studio practice.
Students are introduced to alternative methods of working that allow a free flow of creative and experimental work to be produced as well as a clear understanding of industry practice and workflows that will benefit students in future careers within the creative Industries. Students will gain experience working with print making, drawing and painting, digital visualisation in 2D and 3D. All staff are all established practitioners that use their experience of contemporary practice to inform the curriculum.
