Children’s Book Author Workshop
A one-day workshop led by author/illustrator Maria Carluccio.
September 28, 2014
This workshop is designed to nurture and guide each person to tell his or her own individual story. Students are invited to bring stories to class or they can work on a new story with Maria’s guidance. The class is an extensive overview of the process of children’s books from ideation to finished proposals. We will also partake in exercises and demonstrations created to encourage experimentation with storytelling. By the end of the workshop each student will have developed a story of their choosing plus we will review strategies and resources used to present work to publishers and agents. *If the student is interested in sketching page layouts and/or color art they will get feedback and guidance in that area as well. http://curiousonhudson.com/class-details.php?id=291

We just heard from MFA grad Chad Wallace-his new book is beautiful and all digital-
complete with an animated trailer created by Chad!
“Seahorses” by Jennifer Keats Curtis is my first digitally rendered book for children. My experience in the Master of Fine Arts program at FIT has given me the skills required to stay current in a quickly changing field. This includes animating the first few pages of the book to be used as a promotional trailer. It’s a first step into a larger world as I explore the potential of moving/interactive e-books.”–Chad Wallace
