After-School Workshop Series for 3rd - 6th Grade Students
WORDS & PICTURES: Exploring the Art of Picture Book making with Author and Illustrator Clare Pernice
Thursday Afternoons, 3:45pm - 5:45pm
October 11th, 18th, and 25th
Children’s book author and illustrator, Clare Pernice, will lead this new after-school series focusing on the creation of children’s stories and illustrations.
During Words & Pictures, all participants will have the opportunity to create their own original book pages. Students will learn the materials and processes involved in developing main characters, storylines and illustrations. Clare will introduce the exploration of composition, color, perspective, various styles and materials, expressive vocabulary, and more!
The Society’s award-winning children’s books, exhibitions and collections will serve as inspiration.
No prior art instruction is required. Participants are welcome to bring favorite art supplies, but all materials will be provided.
Born and raised in England, Clare Pernice’s passion for children’s books took root while influenced by Roald Dahl (who visited her school), and her witty story-telling father. Pernice took an avid interest in the world of children’s stories, art and design and went on to graduate from London’s Central Saint Martin’s School of Art. She has since illustrated and exhibited works in Paris, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Charleston and New York. She has also designed children’s books, clothes, toys, & murals, and has created costumes and props for film and stage.
