Illustrators create exciting concepts and visuals for books, magazines, and advertising campaigns, as well as concept art for games, films, and TV. On this course you’ll learn the drawing and illustration techniques you’ll need in the professional creative world, with a focus on craft, versatility, and imagination.

In our large professional studio you’ll explore both traditional and digital approaches to illustration and find your own distinctive way to bring your ideas to life, from creative problem solving and idea generation to drawing, painting, printmaking, and digital design. As well as developing your own personal creative portfolio, you’ll have the chance to put your skills to the test with live industry briefs and the opportunity to enter international creative competitions.
