Welcome to an insightful look into the world of illustration! This online class offers a keen overview into many aspects of illustration: historical examples from around the world, current-day specialized fields of illustration, and demos in the classic (and sometimes unconventional!) tools in an illustrator's toolkit. Although broad in scope, this class is by no means a definitive guide; just a keen insight into what makes the world of illustration so exciting! Practical skills to be covered will include ways to strengthen your drawing skills, the effects of mark-making, colour theory, graphic design basics, hand-lettering basics, and more. Open to all levels of skill, this class is geared more towards drawing beginners and illustrators who are just starting out.
