Have you always had an interest in illustrating books for children? Are you curious about the different types of children’s books and inner workings of the industry? Come spend the week with award-winning author and illustrator, Neecy Twinem, who will guide you through the world of children’s books. This is a week long in-depth creative workshop including a broad range of information inside the world of children’s books. Students may work from a provided poem or public domaine manuscript  or your own manuscript. We will cover the creative process from concept to thumbnails to sketches and final artwork. Neecy will show you different ways to brainstorm ideas. You will learn what works for the different age levels and the trends in the market. Most of all you will have fun exploring different techniques that can be used. You don’t have to be a painter, as illustration can be in any medium, from collage, to scratchboard, to acrylic. Please bring your personal artwork , ideas and writing for feedback. Neecy works with each student individually to guide you to positive solutions to your story concept. This workshop is open to all levels and no experience necessary. 

Please sign up early; class size is limited.
