Where 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!!
We do not know how she does it, but here is Maria, freelancing, writing her thesis, attending classes, school work, personal life AND, check this out- delivering a workshop!
This will be a real treat- we are so happy to others know you and recognize what we know about you, Maria! Good luck!!!
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
