What you'll do

Ever wondered how you can produce beautiful illustrations using your iPad? After this creative experience hosted by talented local artist Abbi Bayliss, you'll be able to do just that. During the workshop, you'll gain an insight into digital illustration and will get the hang of the techniques needed to create your very own monochrome picture.

Using your own Apple Pencil and iPad to create a unique piece of art, Abbi will show you a range of techniques. You'll find out how to use hundreds of small lines to create your own illustration, and build up the contours of a face by contrasting light and dark in a monochrome design.

After starting with a practical run to master the basic techniques, you'll progress to your first illustration of a face using a photo as your guide. You're welcome to bring some of your own photos for inspiration; perhaps this is the perfect opportunity to illustrate someone special in your life!

Abbi will guide you throughout the experience and you'll also have the opportunity to chat with her about her own art. Abbi's recent accomplishments include illustrating a children’s book and being commissioned by the BBC to create an illustration for Black History Month, featuring the Three Dikgosi.

You'll need to bring an iPad and Apple Pencil to this experience to create your illustration.
