Picture Book Illustrating

Picture Book Illustrating

The purpose of this workshop is to give the student a taste and a hands-on, unforgettable experience in illustrating their own book, with their own text or with the text of their choice. The workshop will equip students with sufficient knowledge about all stages of the illustrating process: techniques, thumbnail sketches, page layout, text edit targeting specifically picture books, printing and binding of just a few copies, and self-publishing options for those who want to go big and continue the project on their own. A variety of techniques will be suggested, including collage, paper cutouts, mixed media, painting, drawing and simplified symbolic imagery to allow everybody to find their own way of expression. The concise format of the workshop won’t permit finishing the project, but with the knowledge gained students will be able to continue their work outside the workshop. Creating your own picture book, and especially with your own text, is not only a very rewarding experience, but also a lot of fun! dlootherside.wixsite.com/dotsart
