The Illustration courses have been designed and delivered by Adrienne Geoghegan and initially classroom-based, but now all online since the Covid-19 pandemic. They were designed for aspiring, emerging, or lapsed illustrators and picture bookmakers.
They are also suitable for those who work in the areas of graphic design, animation, or fine art who wish to expand their skill set. Illustrators looking to tailor their portfolio to target children’s book agents and publishers will also benefit.  Participants will have a greater understanding of the current marketplace for children’s picture books.  In addition, the ability to create layouts, character development, storyboards, and texts will enhance your current skillsets, as well as developing new portfolio pieces along with the first draft of a picture book. Taught by published artist, and writer Adrienne Geoghegan.
