THE FIRST LIVE TRAINING STARTS NOVEMBER 4TH 2019 FOR FIVE FAB INTERACTIVE WEEKS PLUS A BONUS CONFERENCE WEEK! And when we say 5 weeks, that’s not a lesson a week – but five jam-packed, time-flexible mentored weeks followed by an instant access week of awesome instruction!

  • Are you a writer wanting to illustrate your own books or would you like to become a better writer by fully understanding how to leave space for the illustrator and how the process works?
  • Or maybe you are a beginning or professional illustrator wanting to update your skills to move into new markets?
  • Whether you’re at the stick figure stage or have won awards – you will wildly increase your chances of publication with this course!!!

“Don’t think you can draw? Lack confidence? Feel like giving up? That was me. Taking the Craft and Business of Illustrating Children’s Books course has given me all the tools I need to take myself towards my dream of publication… [The instructors] are industry professionals with priceless knowledge that is shared openly and enthusiastically with all participants. The broad course curriculum is well-structured with plenty of participant interaction to encourage and support one another. I highly recommend this course to anyone, at any artistic level, who wants the best chance of developing their skills in the picture book industry. Big thanks!” – Kris Sheather (Now Published)

In this course you will learn and practice fun and easy contemporary drawing and color art making techniques while deepening conceptual understandings to create either a picture book dummy (we will help with your story if needed or suggest a public domain story) or wonderful fresh new portfolio in this updated INTERNATIONAL course that has helped launch so many student’s careers!!!
