Do you have an idea for a children's book? Or have you always wondered how to make a story come alive through art?

Through hands-on assignments, illustrated lectures, discussions, and critiques, students get a solid foundation in the basics of visual story-telling, and sketch story characters, make action drawings, develop story boards, and design working book dummies. Explore a wide variety of picture books for inspiration, alongside a real-world introduction to the publishing profession and the industry.
