Unleash your inner illustrator at Alison Johnston's engaging Illustration At Play workshop! Boost your confidence, foster creativity, and dive into a world of visual storytelling. Alison will guide you through exercises that spark ideas and tackle visual problem-solving. Discover the magic of various art materials, experimenting to forge your unique visual vocabulary. Explore the works of influential artists like Degas and Joan Eardsley for inspiration. You will produce a series of thumbnail sketches, capturing the essence of your artwork and suggesting compositions. Your chosen style will dictate the number of finished illustrations you create. Whether your vision is moody and enchanting, bursting with magic or humour, or grounded in realism, this workshop is tailored to your personal illustration project. Use the day to propel your existing project forward or as a creative springboard for new ideas. The workshop wraps up with a lively group critique. We provide a variety of core materials, from pencils and charcoal to acrylic paints. Topics covered include character development, design layout, colour palettes, material experimentation, colour relationships, and setting mood and atmosphere. Don't forget to bring your lunch, but we've got tea and coffee covered!
