Illustration Course Field Trips

Illustration Course Field Trips

Over the last few months, students of the HND in Illustration Course have had a number of field trips and guest lecturers to enhance their study.

Illustrator’s Ireland show

A trip to Athone to visit the Illustrator’s Ireland show ‘Without The Words’ at The Luan Gallery was really inspiring. Students also took part in ‘The Big Picture’, run by Laureate Na nÓg, PJ Lynch, which involved drawing their own illustrations on the walls of the gallery.

Words Ireland Illustrator’s Special

At The National Library, students attended the ‘Words Ireland Illustrator’s Special’. This was an insightful panel discussion by illustrators Chris Judge, Olivia Golden and Olwyn Whelan.

Illustration Course Guest Lecturers

We have also had a number of guest lecturers visiting the college to speak to 1st and 2nd year students.

Painter, Fergus Ryan is currently exhibiting at The National Gallery Hennessey Prize exhibition. He gave a great workshop on the egg tempera technique and spoke about his practice.

Illustrator Kevin McSherry gave ‘mock’ interviews to 2nd years, offering valuable feedback and advice on their portfolios so far.

Conor Merriman, Fashion Illustrator spoke about his work. He also taught a Life drawing class, demonstrating his various approaches to drawing the figure.
