Summer Camp Intensive in Illustration 2020: Meet the Mentors

Here at the Highlights Foundation, we envision Summer Camp a bit differently than s’mores by the campfire and hiking in the woods (although those adventures are always on our schedule, too). To us, Summer Camp is a time to find the kind of encouragement for your writing or illustration that only a generous mentor can provide.

At our Summer Camp Intensive in Illustration (July 19-22), you’ll create:

  • Learn new illustration techniques.
  • Find and advance ideas through play, doodling, book dummies, character development, and more.
  • Hands-on activities will challenge you to sharpen your illustration skills.
  • Learn about dummy preparation, storyboarding, and continuity.

You’ll be mentored:

  • Practice new techniques with support and guidance from faculty.
  • Receive personal attention through one-to-one critiques from your mentors.
  • Participate in group critiques and portfolio reviews with peers and publishing professionals.
  • Get feedback from special industry guests at our portfolio showcase.

You’ll learn about publishing:

  • Faculty demonstrations and lectures to demystify the publishing process.
  • Study art directors’ portfolio expectations.
  • Explore how to find a market for your work.
  • Making a living as an illustrator.
  • Discover ways to promote yourself and your art.
