Illustrating Picture Books at the School of Visual Arts, NYC
Thursday nights 6:00 - 9:30 beginning June 7!
Get to work on that story you have hidden in your sock drawer!
I'm so excited to finally be teaching a picture book class at SVA!
This course will lead the students through every step in the creation of a picture book, from developing the initial idea, through plotting out the book, dummy book and final artwork. There will be in-class drawing exercises and demos designed to help students improve their drawing and thinking skills; by the completion of the course each student will have developed a short picture book (or a dummy for a longer book). The publishing world and other aspects of the children's market will be discussed. Students may work on a story they have created, or one written by someone else. Fairy tales, fables, alphabet books and journals as well as other types of material can be used. Students may work in any media, and experimentation is encouraged.
