Service Description

Have you ever wanted to learn illustration skills to create cards, prints, or even just for your own fun creative outlet? In this course we will learn how to use lots of different materials for creating illustration work. We will learn watercolour and fineliner pen techniques, we will create gorgeous illustrations with gouache paints and will learn to find inspiration in everyday details to create illustrations full of character, colour and fun. At the beginning of the first session you will be given a sketchbook to use for homework assignments (don’t worry, they will be fun!). They are designed to loosen up your style and to practice drawing from life). In each session you will learn how to use the materials by creating illustration work based on themes around People, Places and Things. By the end of the 10 week block you will have developed an artwork that can be scanned then used as a print for you to keep, create your own copies and give to friends and family. Cassandra has an honours degree in Fine Art and Art Education and joined the Birchwood team when we opened in May. Her work has been featured in the Royal Academy Open Exhibition, in local shops, The Edinburgh Art Book and on walls and mantelpieces of homes and flats across the land. All materials and equipment are provided, along with tea/coffee and copious amount of biscuits. The course is 10 weeks with a one week break in February.
