Advanced Illustration

This hands-on course is aimed at a broad exposure to the basic elements of illustration.

For those with experience in drawing, the course will serve as a revision of your drawing skills to be applied in context. There will be fun illustration projects to develop skills and gain experience.

As learning new skills is the goal, it is recommended that some work at home is required between lessons in order for you to receive maximum benefit from the course.
