Build a Book: Writing In Rhythm & Rhyme

Susan Schurman

Playful drawing and writing exercises will develop skill, confidence, and joy in the young author and artist.  Led by book designer and editor, sessions will focus on concepts of texture, color, pattern, shadow and shape in words and pictures, and practical book-building skills.  Each participant will create, edit, revise and assemble a book of original writing and art.
