Description

Creating Children’s Books 8 week course for writers and illustrators

Whether your ambitions lie in writing, illustration or both, Christyan teaches a mixed group on this informal 8-week course.

This is a friendly, beginner-to-advanced course for adults (18+), aimed at those who enjoy children's books, like to draw or write, but don't know where to start. It’s also suitable for those who already have some experience in writing or illustration. Although this is not specifically an illustration course, we aim to help illustrators focus their talents into the goals of character development and book layout.

At first the subject can seem daunting with so many types of children’s books on offer encompassing age groups from birth to teen, but week-by-week the course will introduce you to each of the main areas and find out exactly where your skills lie.

Don’t worry if you can write but not draw, or draw but not write - this course is aimed at those who like to work in either area but don't know how to apply their skills to the task of creating a children's book.

Course runs each Monday evening for 8 weeks with no class at half term.

Christyan also runs one to one workshops from his home studio in Thames Ditton. Manuscript reading, illustration evaluation and photoshop sessions are also available.
