Our physical and natural world is full of fascinating subjects to represent and communicate. ILLUSTRATING SCIENCE is an online course suitable for all people looking to delve into the fascinating discipline of scientific illustration.
In this course, Illustraciencia coordinator Miquel Baidal and professional scientific illustrators Hugo Salais and María Lamprecht will share their expertise and show you the essential tools and process to communicate scientific and natural subjects through accurate and eye-catching visuals.
This course will be focused around digital media: you will learn essential and advanced techniques in 2D digital illustration and 3D modelling, rendering and animation in world-standard softwares (Photoshop and Blender).
In addition, you will gain further insight in professional scientific illustration in up to 5 masterclasses, in which professionals of the area will share their knowledge and experience.

Either if you are looking to enter the discipline of scientific illustration as a serious, professional pursuit, or just looking to explore your passion in science and art, this course is meant for you.
Incredible. I did the Illustrating Science course with them a few months ago. The unbeatable teachers, the projects they propose make you learn a lot, and best of all, it doesn't end when the course ends, because they always offer something (a masterclass, a conference, a video) where you can contact them again. Without a doubt, I will repeat.
I have taken the course "Illustrating science". It has been a very enriching experience on a technical and personal level. Both for the closeness and quality of the teaching staff, and for the generosity of the classmates. Surely you will not be the only one who performs with them!
I participated in the course that was given in April at the National Museum of Natural Sciences, and it was a great experience. The atmosphere is great, and the teachers are very close. The way the course is structured is very pleasant, and that makes learning very pleasant. I recommend it without any doubt!!
I took the online course Illustrating Science. It was very practical, fun and above all I learned the methods to present a professional work of scientific illustration, the importance of organizing the elements in a composition for effective communication. I learned to know when to use the different illustration techniques and to make different illustrations and fields of work. It has been an experience that has opened the way to my passion.
