This is one of my favourite learn to draw pieces that I have seen for a while. The student has used a wonderful array of tones to depict these objects, its all about creating a dramatic effect using light and shade and I feel this student has done well in her quest. I hope that it inspires you all to pick up your pencils!
These are a fascinating set of illustrations from a student who is currently studying the sci-fi and fantasy course. The illustrations show almost a step by step in how this student used a combination of traditional and digital media to create a through provoking and illustrative piece.
We have two new student success stories on our website, you might like to have a read of them for inspiration. Michelle Oak, who is currently on the Graphic Design course scored a fantastic commission to create a logo for a bathrooms company. Read Michelles Story here.
I have also recently caught up with Geraldine Boley who completed her Pet Portrait Diploma some times ago. She is now studying for a Foundation Degree in Applied Art and Design. Read Geradlines Story here.
The London Art College website now has a section within the Student Area for students to write and illustrate their own tutorials to help other students. Our first contributor is a Graphic Design student, Hana Tesar, who has shown how she created her CV piece, which is extremely interesting. Why not check it out – Students own Tutorials
If you are interested in having your own tutorial published in our Student Area, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with all the details and we will add it to our website.
As you may have noticed the college website has undergone some changes and updates this week. We hope that you enjoy looking around our site, finding the new things we have added and tweaked! We feel it is much easier to navigate and hopefully a joy to view all of the student artwork and available courses.
The students now have their own section called Student Area which houses the interactive areas of the site from the college news blog, the student forum, buttons to login to upload your artwork to your tutor, student success stories and testimonials, the student honours list and the student of the year section. This is now allowing the interactive area to grow so we can add lots of new features over the coming months.
One of our newest sections is business and commissioning advice written by our very experienced commercial artist Julie Douglas. It is well worth a read and definitely one to bookmark, especially if you are thinking about starting your own business in the art and craft field.
The help section for students to upload their artwork has been updated and soon the student area will have a new design too, we will blog this when its complete so watch out for that……
We hope you enjoy our new and improved website!
