House of Illustration

House of Illustration are teaching literacy through illustration. What a great idea.

‘PICTURE IT: Inspiration through Illustration is the House of Illustration’s pioneering education programme championing creative approaches to literacy. Professional illustrators work with pupils and teachers on individually-developed practical illustration projects that provide a creative approach to literacy and other topics across the curriculum.

Confidence in literacy underpins confidence in learning in all subjects. Illustration is an ideal medium for developing communication, reading and writing skills, alongside imagination, creativity and art expertise. Children taking part in our projects develop self-expression, increase their ability to communicate ideas, stories and facts and feel a great sense of pride in their professional results.’

Now that’s designers rethinking an issue previously not considered relevant to us. Go designers!
