Interm Children's Book - Jun 1 - Jul 06, 2021 - NC2122CAD10X001

CSDI-N219 - Intermediate Children’s Book Illustration: This intermediate studio course builds on skills, creative techniques, and concepts taught in the introductory Children’s Book Illustration Studio course, but with a focus on building a complete narrative in image and text. Each class focuses on excerpts from one or two works-in-progress where student work is critiqued by both instructor and peers. Students gain insight on the children’s book industry along the way, with classes that look at aspects of both pitching and publishing, including dummies, queries, pitches, proposals, and working with agents, editors and publishers. This course applies towards the Art and Design Studio Skills Certificate and the Graphic Design and Visual Communication Skills Certificate.

NOTE: This course involves the synthesis of writing and illustration in a children’s book. Students should come to the first class with a book idea in storyboard form, with image and text roughed in. Students are free to work with the storyboard they created in the introductory level or bring a new one to workshop.

LEARNING OUTCOMESDuring this course, students will:

. Apply the skills and techniques learned in the introductory level of this course to a longer work in rough form
. Get constructive criticism on excerpts of their work-in-progress
. Gain a deeper understanding of the structure of a children’s book
. Develop and refine their illustration style
. Gain a basic understanding of pitching and publishing in the children’s market"
