Program Overview

Visual Literature is where picture making and writing, two distinct yet complimentary delivery systems, coalesce into dynamic storytelling. One thing that many of the highest creative achievements in the realm of Visual Storytelling have in common, whether avant-garde or historic, is London. Many of the world's most extensive museums, ground breaking storytellers, bookmakers, artists, illustrators and writers hail form London. This program capitalizes on those assets.


In country dates listed above, however the course is 7 weeks from July 2-August 17, 2018.

This program will be useful and welcoming to illustrators, designers and visual artists, in general, as well as writers, scholars, teachers and enthusiasts prepared for graduate level study.
