StoryArts Brisbane presents Sarah Davis 'Illustration Toolbox': An intensive day designed to give you the essential tools for illustration; beginning with a shared prompt, participants will work individually to create a finished illustration and in the process will learn how to brainstorm and develop a concept, design a character, and explore basic principles of form, colour, line, composition and personal style.
Cost: $60 - $90
Time: 10:00am - 4:00pm
What to bring: Sarah suggest you bring your favourite sketchbooks and drawing implements that would be great - pencils/ ink etc. And something on which to take notes.
