Our third Easter Holiday Art Course was all about book illustration. Led by artists and educators, Mark Oliver and Mark Long AKA Pencil and Help, we learned the papercut illustration technique and worked together to create our very own illustrated book.
We started off looking at examples of papercut illustration, like these, and thinking about the effects that you can create.
We then had a go ourselves.
With some great results.
We then started to look at a story about growing up called, ‘I Keep Changing’ by Bob Gill, and thought about how we might create some pictures that would bring the words to life. We developed our ideas as sketches and storyboards.
And then we got to work creating the illustrations for our book.
And then it was time to put them all together, in a final show and tell.
And you can take a peek at it here.
