My Personal Picture Book - Kids Course (ages 8-12)

Time: 2:00-3:30pm

Making a picture book is a multi-disciplinary task of know-hows: construct a concept, write down a storyline, deploy different media and styles to visualise the scenes in mind. Through this process, children will find the language, imagery and way of expression that is uniquely their own.  

 

A picture book is an incredibly effective medium of communication and creative education. By making one, kids will learn about: 

- Story and Narrative - honing the skills to describe an experience or imagination with pictures or words, and how even unrelated images can be organised into something meaningful with a point of view. 

- Characters and Figures - creating characters, concocting events that revolve around them, and identifying the relationship between context and story.  

- Sequential Images - how to do a story board, and understanding the importance of sequence and pace in story-telling. 

- Book Making - how the process helps with presenting your story to others methodically.
