Have you always had an interest in illustrating books for children?
Are you curious about the different types of children’s books and inner workings of the industry?
Come spend the week with award-winning author and illustrator, Neecy Twinem, who will guide you through the world of children’s books.
Working from a provided poem or short manuscript, we will cover the process from concept, to thumbnails, to sketches and final artwork. She will show you different ways you can brainstorm ideas. You will learn what works for the different age levels and the trends in the market. Most of all you will have fun exploring different techniques that can be used.
You don’t have to be a painter, as illustration can be in any medium, from collage, to scratchboard, to acrylic. If you have a simple story that you would like to work from, please bring it as well as your personal artwork for feedback.
Neecy works with each student individually to guide you to positive solutions to your story concept.
This workshop is open to all levels.
Please sign up early; class size is limited.
