This workshop is for children who have always thought they’d like to illustrate a book but didn’t know where or how to start. This workshop is designed to give students a taste of how picture books for 3-7 year olds are created. Participants can bring their own pre-written book. Throughout the workshop, the instructor will give practical demonstrations on how to create fun and realistic characters, ways of dividing the story up to keep the reader turning the pages and methods of using the drawing materials provided. Students will each cut and stick their text into their ‘dummy’ books provided and will then use drawing and collage to illustrate the pages. At the end of this workshop you will be well on the way to completing your very first illustrated draft. We will focus on how to expand children’s imagination and creativity and how they can try to draw their imagination on a piece of paper.
