Illustration Course Week 3

My adult learner group came back together again this week for another illustration lesson. This week I wanted the students to start to focus more on finding their own individual subject matter and to gain the confidence to undertake longer drawing projects. A good portion of the session was given over to creative mind mapping, with the students choosing a prompt word and then free associating from that starting point.

I also introduced the group to the basics of colour theory and gave a demo on using oil pastels. Before coming to the session, I'd printed off some simple colour wheels so that students would have something to refer to.

Peer critique is always a key element of my teaching practice, both with adults and with teenagers. It's been great to see this adult group respond so well to this, readily giving each other sensitive, encouraging and insightful feedback.

Here's a few pictures of some of the work that was created this week.
