Title:   Children's Book Illustration: Beginning to Intermediate      

Course Number:      GRA 000401
Campus: Boston-Fenway   
Room: TBA

Course Description:

Jump into the wonderful world of picture books this summer! As a kid you probably spent happy times with Alice in Wonderland, Winnie the Pooh, Dr. De Soto, and Where the Wild Things Are. Now it's time for YOU to take the plunge, and become author and illustrator! This course offers students the opportunity to create a book "dummy" or mock-up, with text and illustrations. (The text can be either from your own original stories, or from public domain sources.) Assignments will start with creating beginning sketches and text for the book dummy, to small vignettes, and later to full-page and double-spread illustrations. We'll examine the types of children's books in the marketplace, and become familiar with current demands of editors and publishers. This course is suitable for beginners  as well as those developing their current skills. www.ilseplume.com
