We have a student called Lara  Jordan Currently taking the Children’s illustration course. She has already taken her Botanical illustration course and woudl like to pursue a career in art. Lara has written a paragraph below which is accompanied with some of her artwork.

“Last year I completed the Botanical Illustration course II at London Art College, where we worked in mainly watercolour. I wanted to do the Children’s Illustration course to explore learning different media and to loosen up my technique. I have never felt I have developed my own style and so I’m hoping to achieve this too. I would like to eventually be able to earn a living through my art.”

Artwork to cheer you up…

This is a wonderful piece of collage artwork from a student on the Graphic Design course. Its definitely one to cheer you up on a dull morning. The colours are wonderful and it certainly makes me want to eat my 5 a day….!

Vanessa, the tutor for the graphic desing course says …”This student revels in this medium, and is a keen collector of retro images. This piece of work is from the Illlustration study unit on the Art in Graphic Design course. This area of study encourages experimentation in a range of illustrative styles and mediums. The brief is to produce an editorial illustration that highlights healthy eating and promotes the ‘5 a day’ message. It certainly gets the message across in such an energetic, colourful and vibrant way!”
