Study trips have always been an important part of the Illustration Animation course at Kingston. Each year we take students abroad to experience the culture, people, architecture and life of another city. Aswell as recording our time there through drawing, photograpghy and film we organise trips to studios, agencies and creatives. In the past few years we have visited San Francisco, Berlin, New York and Florence. Alongside trips abroad we take students to visit Illustrators, Designers, Collaboratives, Printworkshops Agencies, Publishers and Production Companies working in the UK.

They visited the International Visual Publishing Fair at Bologna and were inspired by an amazing range of picture books from all around the world.
