VIRTUAL: Visual Stor
VIRTUAL: Visual Storytelling with Artist Salli Swindell
Hudson Library & Historical Society

Wednesday, Mar. 3, 7 p.m.
or call (330) 653-6658.
Join local artist and illustrator Salli Swindell for a virtual art workshop on visual storytelling. Whether you are a professional illustrator or an amateur doodler, Swindell will demonstrate her technique used for visual storytelling. This virtual course is designed to help you create an illustration by using a design method Swindell calls "Nestle In & Draw Close." For this course you will only need paper, pencil, eraser and a few colored pencils. We will start by brainstorming ideas. From there we will use written prompts, sketching and color selection to create a finished sketch. After the class, you will be able to complete your illustration using any medium or art technique. 

Swindell began freelancing after working for 10 years at American Greetings. She has illustrated thousands of greeting cards and patterns-eight of which have been nominated for a Louie Award and four have won. Swindell and her brother, Nate Padavick are the founders of They Draw & Cook and They Draw & Travel, the Internet's largest collection of illustrated recipes and maps from artists around the world. 

Registration for this free, virtual program with a valid email address is required at time of registration. Participants will receive an email invitation to attend the program, hosted on Zoom, before the program begins. If you have any questions, please email or call (330) 653-6658 x1010.
