Studio Art: Picture Books

The world of Children's_literature has evolved a great deal even in modern times as demonstrated by example such as: the webstory Inanimate Alice, The book and Flash game Bembo's Zoo, the video above for The Heart and The Bottle and this week we will create our own short children's picture book for the illustration unit of class. Think about what your favorite stories were as a child (take a look at this list of The 50 Best Book for Kids for a refresher) and think about what they had in common and soon well be sketching out your own ideas.  Well begin by working on a classic ourselves "The Farmer and the Dell" and then everyone will develop their own short story with illustrations.
