Studying Illustration at York St John University will provide you with a foundation in illustration practice, centred on drawing, image-making and narrative construction. Engaging in the genres of comics, animation, book illustration, editorial illustration and fashion illustration, you will become well versed in both analogue and digital technologies.
We help you evolve your specialist practice through studio-based and live projects with industry partners, and guide you through self-initiated projects, which respond directly to your personal interests and motivations for the future. With opportunities to engage in professional work we will encourage you to become entrepreneurial, finding and creating opportunities for your future as a practitioner. Alongside studio practice you will build skills in research through a focus on critical enquiry, increasing your ability to learn diverse approaches to your practice, as well as developing your own voice as a researcher.
Undertaking this course in York offers numerous opportunities to engage with illustration and art practice within the local community. York Open Studios is an annual community arts event which celebrates the best artists and makers living within the city by providing an opportunity for the public to visit a selection of artists’ studios and exhibitions. This course will help you to build the connections that put you on that list.
