This 6-week curriculum class will explore the style and inspiration behind the art of some of the best contemporary illustrators. Before children can read, they understand a story through the visual cues an illustrator creates to represent the concept. Art is a powerful tool that help children navigate their world, lend personality to inanimate objects, untangle a multi-layered concept, or explain a complex story to a child. During this session we highlight famous illustrators who are known for their children’s book illustrations, such as Mary Blair, Jerry Pinkney, and Eric Carle to name but a few.
Mondays from 4:30pm - 5:30pm, January 15, 22, 29, February 5, 12 and 19.
