BA (Hons) Illustration
My illustration of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The ugly duckling”, is portrayed through different mediums to answer to my sub theme of “sensory”.
My project focusses on creating designs to caterer for primary school children, within their learning environments – particularly those who struggle with learning difficulties such as dyslexia.
I aim to allow the author’s message to resonate through my project: ‘it does not matter if you’re born in a duck’s yard, so long as you are hatched from a swan’s egg’. This perfectly emphasises my own narrative / message I wish to portray to a young audience – no matter the adversities, in terms of learning difficulties, children can overcome this through commitment and hard work, i.e. ‘hatching’.
Critically addressing children’s self-esteem in their learning will always harvest great potential on their journey into adulthood.
