Last week Level 4 Illustration students were treated to 2 days in the studio with Storyteller, Ian Douglas. Ian has a background in theatre and performance so was full of energy and creative ideas. Ian worked with the students in very physical ways to create their own stories, he did this by asking the group to work in unusual ways to stimulate imagination. Who would have thought the illustrators were budding actors? They got into character, staged scenes using each other and used each others life stories as the starting point to tell unique stories. The students were connected to the stories they told and helped each other. They will now work on illustrating these stories, letting the words and pictures work together.
