Design + Illustration  | Grades 3-12

How does an illustrator tell a story? Explore the playful, colorful prints of east-coast artist JooHee Yoon, and embark on a special class illustration project inspired by our spring exhibit. According to Yoon, “The core of illustration is problem solving.” Examine Yoon’s creative use of scale, pattern, and color to communicate ideas, action and emotion, and then experiment with these elements of design in the studio.  Create a suite of colorful prints to illustrate a class collection of poems or short stories. Yoon has illustrated several children’s books, including The Tiger Who Would Be King, named one of the best illustrated children’s books of 2015 by The New York Times.
