Tutor: Sean Julian

Over five informal sessions, explore different approaches to creating children’s books and find one that works for you. The course will consider character design, narrative, illustrating a text, page composition and world creation. Drawing games will be used and to introduce participants to the many children’s book styles. By the end of the course students will develop a children’s book character and a short-illustrated narrative sequence. Over the last 17 years Sean Julian has illustrated and written many different children’s books, working for UK and international publishers.
