W F C IV: Introduction to Illustrating Children's Books

Writing for Children IV: Introduction to Illustrating Children’s Books Sure, you need drawing skills to illustrate a children’s book, but it’s the ability to tell a story visually that makes a children’s book illustrator. In this workshop, we will meet online for synchronous sessions to introduce and explore the process and key concepts around illustration for children’s literature. The goal is to better understand the illustration process and how to develop basic strategies to set you on the road to illustrating your own projects. *This synchronous workshop meets online eastern time. Participants are expected to be online during the time listed above. Directions for accessing the course page will be emailed upon registration.
