Course No. ILL 220-320-420 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Suzanne McGinness
This course will explore the creation of a picture book through historical context, the evolution of children’s book illustration, and the methodology of creating art for a picture book. Picture books continue to expand in modern markets through digital applications as well as book art, a sculptural narrative object. Students will gain knowledge of the publishing industry and the process of submitting a body of work. Students will be expected to create a personal illustrative narrative by means of gathering reference and creating consistent and well developed characters that exist in a story.
This course is strongly recommended for elective students interested in picture books and visual narratives. Open to all sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
