The Illustration program offered by University of Gloucestershire is based on application and testing of communicative drawing, as well as drawing with identified purpose and intent. An intense and productive process of enquiry and investigation, focusing on the acquisition of fluency, clarity and coherence in expressing visual narrative, will form your core practice.
The techniques and technologies which form the practice-based mechanisms of illustration are also key, with the aim of achieving a dynamic, sophisticated and confident application of process.
Drawing will also form a methodology for research and investigation, supported by lectures and workshops, and delivered by illustration staff who have a wide range of industry and publishing experience. You will be guided in intellectual and critical enquiry through practice, lectures and reflective study.
You will have opportunities to print, publish and disseminate your work in collaborative and personal publications for our imprint, ‘The Pittville Press,’ which is actively promoted at book fairs and publishing events.
