Picture books can magically transport us to other worlds, spark young imaginations, and nurture an early love of reading. This class, for those who want to write and those who want to draw, will introduce the elements that make up the magic of picture books: the interplay of the 3D object of the book, images and spoken word text. This class will introduce story arcs, character development, standard picture book forms, and how to sketch a storyboard and construct a book dummy (even if you don’t draw!). Our final class will cover the process for submitting to traditional publishers and how to successfully self-publish your book. Illustration by Jeannette Bradley.
