“Learning by doing” could be the motto of this series, which we are offering again to adults online at VisArts. In the course we will be talking about four illustrators’ styles (and comparing them to the others’) , the color palettes, and the materials. Then students will interpret part or all of the examples we focus on . The first illustrator will be Ernest H. Shepard, who illustrated A.A.Milne’s original Winnie the Pooh in pen and ink (shown) as well as others by the author.
