Illustrate a Picture Book

Hand bind a book, create illustrations and learn to work with text.

Your kid will bring a story to illustrate, explore approaches to illustrating, and work on their book over 5 sessions. Kids will hand bind a book, explore possible materials, and learn about adding text to the images to tell the story. We will celebrate by reading them to the group in the end.
