BEHIND THE BLING: LECTURE WITH NORA KRUG!

Behind the Bling Letter.72Where better to have a lecture that highlights bling than at FIT?!
The MFA in Illustration Program, School of Graduate Studies is so excited to bring the first lecture in a series that will highlight the stories of award winning projects- you know, the bling that acknowledges the admiration of one’s peers for an illustration. Now, we all know that an award is not the only barometer of good work- not by a long shot- but it is a great thrill and sense of accomplishment.

So, how does it happen? What is the journey? Nora Krug will be on our campus, telling us the story behind her bling- the prestigious Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators in New York for Shadow Atlas, an encyclopedia of ghosts. The art director, Enrico Fiammelli, will join us from ITALY in live time! We are so excited and will remind you again- SAVE the DATE! Wednesday, March 18, 6:30 pm in Katie Murphy Amphitheatre. Open to the public! Spread the word!!

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
