Writing and illustrating childrens books courses
Writing and Illustrating a Children's Picture Book | Curtis Brown CreativeToggle navigation. Does anyone have recommendations for online PB illustration courses? Any positive or not-so positive experiences? I'm interested in both illustrating and writing. I definitely want to learn about making a book dummy as an illustrator. I'd love to hear what other people have done!
Illustrating a Children's Book
online illustration courses/workshops
Students will work on character development, composition and color design, with the aim of applying these in their medium of choice for a professional portfolio. Class time will include Power Point presentations, in-class demonstrations, review of books and resources, and critique and discussion time. Students will focus on their medium of choice and create three to four finished illustrations for a professional portfolio, as well as designing a professional postcard and business card showcasing their best work. Students will also experiment with the medium of words and will craft one picture book manuscript for the class, as well as a storyboard and book dummy. The final project will be a finished illustration from that story in the medium of their choice. Classes will include critique and discussion time.
