Illustrating Children’s Books

October 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Explore the steps involved in illustrating a children’s book. Through hands-on assignments, lectures, and critiques, students examine aesthetic and technical aspects including text analysis, concept development, character studies, and storyboarding. Students create illustrations that harmonize with the text, produce a rough dummy, and create three pieces of full color, resolved illustrations. Also covers how to submit artwork and/or book proposals to art directors and editors, how to market your work and what you can expect in a publishing contract. Suitable for beginning to advanced artistic skills. (XILU6009)

Presented by Whizin’s Soraya Sarah Nazarian Program in the Fine Arts and Otis College of Art and Design.

This class takes place at AJU’s Familian Campus.
