Other Useful Resources We Discussed in the Picture Book Class:

Carla Sonheim’s Mixed Media Drawing Book

Carla Sonheim’s Classes-She runs the Silly Class which I talked about. This is the class where each morning, we receive a short (ten minute or less), fun and silly drawing assignment to do via our e-mail. I participated in her January class and loved it!

Writing the Picture Book for Educators--This is the class I teach through Seattle Pacific University for Educators. You’ll need to look under the category of Reading, Writing and Communications. This is a year-long distance learning class that you complete at your own pace. Educators earn five continuing education classes. A great way to work on your picture book and get feedback from me!
