Sorry about the lack of posting recently—I’ve had some family business to attend to.
Here’s some news: if you are handy to Oil City, Pa this August/September, I am offering a six-week children’s illustration workshop. It’s Thursday evenings 6:00 – 9:00 starting August 2nd at the National Transit Building, 206 Seneca Street, Oil City, Pa 16301. Students should have basic drawing and painting ability. The class fee is $115.00—students bring their own supplies. A supply list will be provided. You can call 814-677-3707 for more info.
We will cover storyboarding, character design, color theory, design fundamentals as well as the business aspects of children’s illustration. The setup is loose enough that I can cover anything you have questions about, too. You’ll be asked to bring a short story or poem—like an Æsop fable or Mother Goose rhyme—that would fit into a page-and-a-half magazine format.
The class sold out last year so sign up soon. Send your name, address & phone number to OVCA/Classes, 206 Seneca Street, Oil City, Pa 16301 with a $115.00 check payable to Oil City Arts Council.
