I was honoured to win a nation wide contest to illustrate Dennis Lee's reprint of Alligator Pie. I have illustrated five published children's books in total. I graduated from a Canadian Art College in Visual Communications, then worked as an illustrator for thirty years, doing mostly editorial and advertising commissions. I have done numerous, live drawing presentations for elementary age children at schools and libraries. Most recently, I taught Illustration and drawing fundamentals for seven years at a Canadian Art University.
3-5 sheets of blank paper, ideally white 8.5 X 11 inches. Also pencil, pen or black felt pen.
Informal group assessment; at the end of the class, students will choose their favourite one to share, followed by a short discussion of each.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
