The second in the Caldecott 75th Anniversary webinar series is The Fine Art of Children’s Book Illustration. It takes place September 18, 2012 at 3 pm CST and November 8, 2012 at 3 pm CST. This presentation, lead by picture book and art expert Dilys Evans, focuses on the 10 principles for illustrating a great picture book. Following each principle there will be illustrations from children’s books to illuminate the principle. The artists featured range from three time Caldecott medal winner David Wiesner, to Betsy Lewin the illustrator of the wildly successful “Click Clack Moo” series, to a more recent Caldecott winner Brian Selznick creator of “The Invention of Hugo Cabret” now an Oscar winning motion picture.
