Creating illustrations for a children’s manuscript is loads of fun once you get to know the basics. Join author and illustrator Lori VanKirk Schue as she leads you through the foundations of interpreting a story through pictures.

Learn how to start; appropriately fit illustrations to the storyline; choose mediums that are most successful; transform reality into whimsy; and how to listen and learn from an author to gain insight into their vision for the story and its characters.

Students take a look at different types of illustration and develop their own unique characters and designs. Information on working with publishers and legally protecting your art is also discussed.

Prior drawing experience is helpful but not required. Bring drawing paper, a pencil, sharpener, eraser, and a watercolor set or colored markers.

One 5-hour session includes lunch break (students provide their own)
