Learn how to write and illustrate a children's book by using your favourite art methods or by learning something new with children's author and illustrator Monique Scott on this exciting new course.

Monique graduated from University of Sunderland with a BA HONS Degree in Illustration and Design and is now a self-published author and illustrator of 'Two Little Mice' and 'Kiwi's Pebble'.

Monique will teach you how to create ideas for a children's book, bringing the story to life using creative research, character design, story boards and colour pallets, to then producing your own children's picture book which you could go on to self-publish.

Having access to a scanner, camera or a computer/laptop/tablet is beneficial, but not essential.

You will be given advice and tips to upload your work on a computer to design the text and layout using Adobe Indesign, Photoshop, Affinity or Microsoft word.

Four week course costs £70, price includes tuition and a hot drink each week.

You will need basic art materials along with a sketchbook and note pad.
