Spots available this summer at picture book boot camp!
The University of Washington is pleased to offer ILLUSTRATING CHILDREN'S BOOKS, evenings on the Seattle campus, June 19 - July 12.
Illustrator and SCBWI WWA Co-Regional Advisor Jaime Temairik is here to help you get your picture book art and/or text in shape! Details after the jump.
In eight classes, beginners and seasoned picture book makers alike will complete a picture book dummy.
If you're new to picture books and want to give them a try, this is the class for you.
If you think you know how to make a picture book, but you're stuck on a project, this class will help figure out what's been holding you back.
You've heard all those golden picture book rules before, you say? Ask yourself, am I following all of them? Will it hurt to be reminded of them?
This class will introduce you to key picture book making concepts, or help you dig a little deeper on what you think you already know.
We'll be meeting eight evenings in June and July, and it's a great chance to devote yourself more fully to the art of making picture books.
If you've been having trouble practicing picture book making regularly and/or frequently, this class will help you commit to a summer of butt in chair!
There are still spots left in the class, be sure to register soon, click to visit class details and registration pages.
Guest speakers include: Author/Illustrator Ben Clanton and University Book Store Children's Book Buyer Lauren Mayer.
