Taught By: Jacquie Hann

Section: A

CRN: 1513

Credits: 3

In this course, each student develops a children's book from an initial concept to a "dummy" ready for submission to a publisher. The class explores the entire production process, including searching for ideas, writing a first draft, making sketches and character studies, editing, creating finished artwork and dummies, and writing cover letters and submitting a finished work to publishers. Writing assignments help students focus their ideas and build their stories. Illustration assignments lead to creation of a portfolio that can be shown to art directors. Weekly critiques help students hone their individual styles.
