Picturecamp 2018

Residential picturebook masterclass in rural Spain

A 4-day intensive masterclass in September 2018 covering the fundamentals of picture book making. It will offer new and aspiring authors the opportunity to expand their skills in a friendly and relaxed setting, with award winning author/illustrators Benji Davies, Alexis Deacon, Tor Freeman, Jorge Martin, Yara Kono and Ana Pez.

There will be practical advice and exercises on all aspects of creating picture books: writing, story building, composition, rhythm and character development, as well as how to market and pitch your book to publishers. The class will be limited to 20 students to ensure there is quality time to develop your ideas and get feedback.

And it is held in a historic and beautiful rural village, with good local food and wine, and a rare opportunity to experience Spanish culture on the 4th 5th 6th and 7th September.
