Experience the art of creating children’s books first-hand. Participants will experiment character development, make a storyboard, and a model of the story they are working on. We will then review the formula for structuring a picture book: introduction, story development, and the story’s climax and resolution in relation to its illustrations. We will also examine page layout, design and illustration style, as well as different kinds of art media used in picture books. Participants will draw in class while discussing and learning the above. Assignments will be given.
