The Illustration department at the University of Gloucestershire is about exploring creative possibilities.
You will develop original, creative ideas using new and traditional skills and be given the freedom to apply them. The course aim is that you will become an independent, creative individual, able to apply your personal vision within the spectrum of modern media opportunities. Set projects provide a structure and build the development of a disciplined work process. You'll respond to briefs, applying your studio skills such as printmaking, life drawing and digital techniques. Personal self-initiated projects will help you to develop personal direction and professional awareness of the many possible contexts for your work, such as publishing, animation, television, journalism, advertising, design, games.
This course strongly promotes the concept of authorship. You can self publish books, magazines and graphic novels under the imprint of the course - the Pittville Press.For course details email or phone Kieren Phelps, Head of Illustration, University of Gloucestershire,Francis Close Hall, Swindon Road, Cheltenham, GL50 4AZ.
