Welcome to How To Illustrate A Children’s Book!

We’re so glad you stopped by our Facebook page — an arts community and resources forum that celebrates children’s book illustration and illustrators.

Students working in the children's book illustration class

You’ll see references here to the blogs How to Be a Children’s Book Illustrator and Illustration Course and an online course, Make Your Splashes – Make Your Marks! that teaches children’s book illustration and how to keep improving your drawing and painting.

While the course focuses on good design and traditional painting, you’ll also find info on digital art-making and the emerging electronic publishing marketplace.

Subscribe to our e-newsletter full of  news and tips and see a suite of free videos that reveal a great secret for drawing easily, perceptively, beautifully.

Like our page (top right corner) and we’ll keep you in the loop with the best content we find each day. This way you’ll be able to stay up with the children’s book illustration world through Facebook.

We hope you enjoy the posts, apps and community you discover here. Please feel free to interact and share with us!
