Writers & Illustrators | Ages: 10-13

July 17, 2023 @ EST 9:00 am - July 21, 2023 @ EST 4:00 pm

In this exciting collaboration between Writers & Books and the Creative Workshop at the Memorial Art Gallery, you’ll create your own fantastically illustrated and imaginatively written story. You’ll learn how to illustrate an idea, choose a fitting style, and draw things you thought you didn’t  know how to draw.  You will learn the basics of plot, character, and setting, and how to use language that makes your story come alive. We’ll also spend time drawing in the museum. At the end of the week, you’ll take home your own illustrated book. Students will spend the morning at Writers & Books working with a writer and the afternoon at the Creative Workshop learning from an artist. Staff will walk the students between these sites during the lunch hour.
