Event description

Description

Learn the basics of illustration and complete a short drawing project in a day in this highly practical masterclass with illustrator Millie Nice.

Whether you have always wanted to know more about illustration or are already working on honing your drawing style, this introductory workshop with professional illustrator and teacher Millie Nice will set you on the right path.

Learn what it means to draw for a living and gain an insight into different forms of illustration, including editorial and advertising content, book design and children’s stories, as well as the underground world of comics and zines.

Millie will encourage you to start thinking visually and try different art materials in a playful and supportive environment. During the class, you will have a chance to complete a short illustration project from an initial idea to a finished artwork.

The day will finish with a group discussion and sharing of work, giving everyone a chance to receive feedback and consider ideas of how to continue drawing at home. No prior drawing experience is necessary, but an interest in drawing and a creative, adventurous attitude is a must.

Content

  • Current and historical illustration trends
  • How to approach a brief
  • Researching and sketching ideas
  • Using a range of mixed media techniques
  • Working from an initial idea to a finished artwork

Tutor profile

Millie Nice is an artist, art historian and educator, who specialises in bringing history to life in her illustrations. Having worked with the Courtauld Gallery, the Wallace Collection, Tate Britain and King’s College London, her drawings are often an irreverent (but always accurate) discussion of the past and how we see it.
