This online course brings together the teaching materials from our two individual courses - for people who want to work on the text and the illustrations for children's picture books. This course is ideal for aspiring writers or illustrators who want to learn the fundamentals behind making a picture book. The course is suitable for complete beginners as well as those who have already written picture book texts but want to learn more and improve their skills. This great learning package features teaching videos and substantial notes organised into ten weekly modules designed for flexible study, so you can take part at times to suit you and from wherever in the world you are. Sarah McIntyre works as an illustrator and writer from her studio in south London. These 'comic jams' eventually led to a Jampires comic, which they later took to a publisher and turned into a picture book. Including footage of Sarah drawing to demonstrate techniques and ideas, and David and Sarah discussing the world of picture books.
