BA (Hons) Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts takes an innovative, experimental and critical approach to the broad practice of illustration. Our students are encouraged to challenge the position of the illustrator within commercial, social, political and cultural contexts whilst maintaining and developing the core values that underpin the practice.
What can you expect?
• To develop their understanding of the key principles, themes and debates that define illustration through practical experimentation and production.
• To explore notions of authorship and the reproduced image.
• To identify audiences and consider how they can make their work visible in a ‘real world’ context through end of year exhibitions.
• To consider the constantly evolving and creative environments illustrators exist in through workshops, technical inductions, tutorials and seminars; and define their practice accordingly.
• To examine their identity as an illustrator, whilst planning and realising practical projects.
• To be challenged and have their ideas tested through rigorous evaluation of both practical and written work.
• To investigate ideas and issues through seminar discussions, presentations and writing.
• To have access to Camberwell's shared workshops.
