In conjunction with my exhibit at the Worcester Art Museum, I will be teaching a workshop called, "The Business of Children's Books". You can register online here! Here's some info on the three hour workshop:
Join Worcester native and award-winning author/illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka and see the world through the eyes of a professional children's book artist. Jarrett will share his experience growing up as an artist, the rejections he faced, and the growth of his writing and illustrating process. He'll also cover the submission process and distribute a packet of handouts with tips for beginning writers and illustrators. A question and answer session will be followed by a walk through the exhibition, Monkey Boy to Lunch Lady: 10 Years of Jarrett J. Krosoczka. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Jarrett has published several children's and pre-teen books including Good Night, Monkey Boy; Punk Farm; and the Lunch Lady Series.
