The Art of the Picture Book (Week One)

Instructor(s): Private: Debra Eileen Lewis
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

Do you want to both write a story and illustrate it? Take this class and learn how picture books for children are made. In a picture book, the images are just as important as the words. In this class we will read picture books together to understand the basics of picture book creation and we will work all week on our own picture books to bring home with us. Using both words and pictures (drawing and/or collage), students will learn how to create a story with a plot by creating problems and solutions that will bring characters of their own creation on a fun-filled journey. They will also learn the basics of visual art (composition, color, line) and how to use these techniques to add more depth and detail to their stories.
