Children’s Book Illustration

Instructor: Linda Graves
Cost: $125
5 week course • Wednesdays 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Dates: 9/18, 9/25, 10/2, 10/9, 10/16

This class will concentrate on illustrating a book for children, from concept, to thumbnails, to rough sketches, and then final sketches, to final painting or drawing. We will also work on maintaining consistency in the execution, the flow of the book, as well as creating some excitement in the variation of the pictures. Any medium the participants desire to use will be fine. I’ll be doing (very kind), but truthful critiques along the way. Initially I’d like people to choose a story they would like to illustrate and bring it to the first session, as well as a small list of supplies.
