Jack Viant – BA (Hons) Illustration
"I had an amazing time on the Illustration course at Arts University Plymouth! I learned a lot about my own illustration style, taking full advantage of the three years – it took me a while to hone in on a style that was right for me. The lecturers really pushed me to try new things which was a real challenge for me at the beginning.
The support from my tutors, fellow illustration piers and the rest of the university staff played a huge part in my evolution at the college.
The relationship I have with the university is one that I will never forget. And they will find it hard to get rid of me as I am now employed here as a lecturer! I love working for them, I have also enjoyed completing the full evolution from student to staff!"
Bénédicte Barrett – BA (Hons) Illustration
"It’s been a very good experience, I’ve learned new digital skills, developed ideas, and become more interested in environmental issues. I draw first then scan. We have workshops in print and I’m really into self-authoring and publishing. I wanted to have the chance to develop my artistic side and I plan to carry on teaching and creating things for children."
