Write a children's story
Who is this course for?
This course is suitable for adults who are interested in learning how to illustrate children’s books. Complete beginners are welcome. A great opportunity to write a children’s story. What were your favourites? Take a look at children’s stories and see what the main character(s) get up to! See how you can make the storyline fun, interesting and even educative! It can be unusual, imaginative, fantastical and even witty!
You will be taught a number of creative techniques that lend themselves to illustration and you will have the opportunity to work on your own small-scale piece of work.
