In this class series, students will experience the varied art mediums and styles that each of our chosen children’s book illustrators have used, to create their body of artwork. We will be using oil pastels to work large-scale (at least 11″x 14″). This class is perfect for new students as well as returning students to discover new illustrators. The aim is not to copy an illustration exactly but to use it as a jumping-off point.

The books we will cover in this series are as follows:


Story Boat by Kyo Maclear

Tar Beach by Faith Ringgold

The Rabbit Listened by Cori Doerrfeld

Beautiful Blackbird by Ashley Bryan

Drawn Together by Minh Le

A Big Mooncake for Little Star by Grace Lin
