Establishing Your Style

Your illustration or artistic style is an essential in establishing your professional credibility. You might think that being able to work in style a, b and c would be an advantage for a freelance illustrator, but the opposite is true. Find out why and how an individual style can be nurtured, developed and made to work for you.

Course Description

Your illustration or artistic style is an essential in establishing your professional credibility. You might think that being able to work in style a, b and c would be an advantage for a freelance illustrator, but the opposite is true. Find out why and how an individual style can be nurtured, developed and made to work for you.

What we'll Do

Part 1

I have some materials prepared on the subject of style, which we'll look at first. This includes elements of style, the relation of style to methods and materials and how a style is arrived at by an artist or illustrator.

Part 2

We'll focus on students’ work, stylistic aspirations, issues and potential directions. Students will each have individual tutor-time

What to Bring

1. Please bring lots of your work to look at. Sketchbooks, work in progress, your portfolio if you have one, images you've made, both digital and 'real,' even work from the past that maybe you've moved on from. If you have a current project you'd like help with, or you're trying to put together a portfolio, please bring those things along.

2. If you like, bring some examples of styles you admire, or even that you aspire to. This could be on a memory stick, or prints, or we could look at websites you know of.

I have lots of art materials, just in case trying something out or sketching could be part of our exploration, but if there are materials of yours you'd like to bring, please do. Bring your laptop if that would be helpful for accessing images, websites, etc. Alternately, we can use mine. I have exercises you can do while other students work is being reviewed. Or take a break, have a think, come back and have another chat about your style.

Committing to the class

With the small number of students and the brief time between now and when the class runs, it won't be possible to accommodate enrolees who want to change to a different date. If you withdraw from a class up till 10 days before it runs, you'll get a refund of 50% of the class's cost.After that there won’t be a refund.

Flexible activities within our core topic

An advantage of a small class is that people can bring up subjects related to the class topic that they have questions about or are interested in. Or we can modify an activity based on individual interests.

Class duration/cancellation

If there are only 2 students in the class, it will probably end a half-hour early. If only one student is enrolled, the class will probably be cancelled and your money refunded.

If any questions please let me know.Best, Bill
