If you’re new to children's book illustration, have never illustrated a children’s book before, or are considering a career in illustration, this is the perfect place for you!  Each illustration workshop is a 2-hour session taught by a Disney animator and professional illustrator and is specially designed for 5th-12th grade students. Each workshop will teach artists how to take story text and break it down into images. Artists will be given a short story and learn how to come up with thumbnails, choose interior images and design and illustrate their own book cover while listening to music from everyone's favorite animated movies. The CALENDAR page will let you know what specific stories we'll be illustrating on what date. Artists will draw in their own sketchbooks to take home and share with family and friends. New illustration workshops will be added monthly to the calendar so check back frequently.
