Children’s book author and illustrator, Clare Pernice, will lead this new after-school series focusing on the development of children’s stories and illustrations. During “Words & Pictures,” students will learn how Clare develops the main character in a book, and then invites students to create their own. As a group, they will look at several examples of award-winning children’s books and the Society’s current exhibitions and collections to explore composition, color, perspective, various illustration styles and materials, expressive vocabulary, and more….all leading up to the development of a draft of each student’s own original book pages. \
No prior art instruction is required. Participants are welcome to bring favorite art supplies, but all materials will be provided.
Series will not repeat. Signing up for consecutive series will cover different information or projects each time.
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.
