The Making of a Book... An Illustrator's Tale Literature- Other,
Visual Arts- Drawing,
Visual Arts- Painting
In a colorful slide presentation, the fascinating process of illustrating a picture book evolves before your eyes! Students come away from this program with a deeper understanding of the book-making process as well as a glimpse into the tiny world of microorganisms. A microscope and special camera are used to view the inhabitants of pond water! Based on her latest book, Amoeba Hop, Mrs. Feeney describes the many steps of book illustration from initial pencil sketch to final oil paintings. Thumbnail sketches, a book dummy and the use of a computer in the design of the pages are all part of the interesting procedure.
$351- $500
Initial Cap Design Literature- Other,
Literature- Creative Writing,
Visual Arts- Drawing
Mrs. Feeney conducts hands-on workshops for grades 3 and up where the students will study one of the most creative parts of a picturebook, the “Initial Cap”. This element of design and illustration is based on the first capital letter of the story which is enhanced in some way. The Initial Cap is one of Mrs. Feeney’s favorite parts of illustrating a book and it is also something that she really enjoys teaching students how to create themselves for their own writings.
$201- $350
Giant Book & Song Literature- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Theater
For younger students, it is an eye-popping experience to see an almost 6-foot wide picturebook open before them! The smallest of worlds comes to life in a big way when Mrs. Feeney turns the pages of her giant book. The American Association for the Advancement of Science has praised the book saying, “Amoeba Hop is an innovative approach to introduce young students to the world of microbiology, using song lyrics.” The students will also perform the story of Amoeba Hop right in the classroom using large cutout characters from the book and the little girl’s umbrella & coat!
$201- $350
