Course Description

As a kid you probably spent happy times with Winnie the Pooh, Dr. De Soto, or Where the Wild Things Are. Now it’s time for YOU to take the plunge, and become author and illustrator! In this course, students will create a book dummy, or mock-up. Assignments start with beginning sketches and text, to small vignettes, and later full-page and double-spread illustrations. We’ll examine types of children’s books in the marketplace, and become familiar with current demands of editors and publishers. This course is suitable for beginners as well as those developing skills further. Level: all levels (beginner to advanced).
