Children's Illustration Workshop

Ever wanted to illustrate your own children's book or just something cute?


This 4-hour course will teach you the basics of drawing cute characters and explain what makes things cute. You will also learn how to design your own character and do a complete illustration by the end of the course!


This workshop is suitable for participants aged 16 and above. Participants will need to have dabbled in watercolour before — experience in primary/secondary school counts! If you've never painted using watercolour before, our Watercolour Workshop (4 Weeks) will be suitable for you.
