Children’s Book Illustration
Children’s book illustrators capture the imagination, delight the senses, and engage the minds
of millions of kids daily. They translate text into
imagery that children can process and enjoy
while also sharing accurate information. There
are three keys to being a successful illustrator:
•Know the techniques and skills that captivate
children’s minds, sustain their attention, and
enrich the reading experience.
•Understand storyboarding, basic book structure and format, character development,
style, and self-promotional strategies.
•Work effectively with designers, editors and,
sometimes, directly with authors to create
the best possible manuscript.
Get a solid foundation in the specialized skill
sets that improve your chances of getting published. The program introduces students to
a wide variety of media and advanced topics
required for a thriving career.
The program can be completed in 9-12 months
and courses may be offered both on-site and
online. Online courses are asynchronous but
not self-paced; students are required to keep up
with weekly assignments. The average student
spends three hours online and six hours offline
each week. Please preview our e-learning system
