Event description
Short Course: Creating Visual Sequences with Characters with award-winning illustrator Viviane Schwarz & publishing art director Ben Norland

About this event

In this two-day course you'll know how to take your ideas and roughs to the next level to support you in your picture book project.

Creating impactful visual sequences with your characters requires understanding how to use timing and structure in sequential images. In this two-day course you’ll discover methods for expanding your characters, and learn how to apply tools and techniques to develop story roughs with confidence. By the end of the course you’ll know what to aim for in taking your ideas and roughs to the next level, for example a full-scale picture book project. Ideally you’ll bring a developed character design and story idea* to the course - but you’re also welcome to join without!

This short course will be delivered online.

*Detailed guidance will be provided by the artists when you sign up
