This session we will create a wordless illustration book!

First, students will do an exercise of facial expressions to learn how to tell a story through images.

 Then, students will start to brain-storm ideas and create a story board to plan the story of their book.

We will look at books like “The Lion and the Mouse” (by Jerry Pinkey) for inspiration on how to tell a story without words, and also “Olivia” for the ascetic of simple but captivating imagery.

 Students will spend the following weeks creating their stories, and the last day of class they will sew it together with the beautiful cover that they created!
