A Postgraduate Certificate in Illustration provides students with the fundamental principles and contextual understanding required in being an illustrator. With the exception of one liberal studies component, courses are studio-based and require competency in draftsmanship. Students engage in visual problem solving, text-to-image translations and media exploration, while developing individual methodologies and an awareness of contemporary issues that affect the practice.
