How can a picture bring a story to life? In this class, you will begin by "reading" some of your favorite books by looking closely at the pictures and practicing some of the techniques used by the illustrators. In each of the first 5 classes you will try out a different technique and make your own painting, drawing or collage. Then, in the last 5 classes you will create your own series of pictures that will tell your own story. The artists you will explore incolude Eric Carle, Molly Bang, Alexandra Day, Maurice Sendak and Beatrix Potter.
