Creating the Character with Art Director Lauren Rille
Saturday, April 11, 2020 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 Noon
Calling all illustrators and writers! How do you created characters that jump off the page? In this half-day workshop with Art Director Lauren Rille, with Simon & Schuster, she will get technical about emotion and explore how to create a fully fleshed out character, full of heart and personality (and everything in between!) As a Picture Book author, Rille will also talk about characters from an author’s viewpoint.
Bring your pens, pencils and sketch books.
PRICE REDUCTION! We have lowered the price for the Intensive. See the chapter website for new prices.
