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
