Create a Picture Book (Ages 6-8)
Everyone has a story to tell. Combine character drawings, environments and dialogue to create your very own picture books. This course gets everyone drawing their own characters on the first day, and then dives into techniques for visual storytelling. We'll look at picture books at the beginning of each class for inspiration and create several books using a variety of media and techniques.
- Students may go outside in the neighborhood for walks.
This is an On-site course. Students must follow current CDC + VDH guidance outlined on our website: visarts.org
