405-001 Creative Writing: Picture Books for Children

405-001 Creative Writing: Picture Books for Children

Instructor: Laura Jean Baker

Description:

We will read more than 50 picture books – the best of the best from 1939 to 2017 – and seek to emulate writers essentials to this genre. Through collaboration from area schools and college students from the Art Department, we will write and illustrate picture books of varying lengths for readers between the ages of 1 and 101. Using a theoretical framework to understand how picture books shape literacy, enrolled students will develop clear arguments for which elements of craft are essential in writing for children and their caregivers.
