LIS 358 Media for Children Dr. Rhonda Clark Week 4 lecture notes Week 4: Illustrations 1. Evaluation criteria of illustrations:  Use of visual elements (line, color, shape, and texture), and certain artistic media should complement and/or extend the story’s plot, characterization, setting, and theme.  Design should reinforce the text and convey unity.  Artistic style should enhance the literary style.  Illustrations should develop the characters  Illustrations should help readers anticipate the story and its climax  Illustrations should be accurate historically, culturally, and geographically; they should also be consistent with the text. 2. Lines:  Lines are familiar to virtually everybody. Lines are definite, intelligible, and lead the eye.  Lines allow the eyes to do as kids do when they are getting to handle the objects around them. 3. Color:  Combining color and line is how artists show mood and emotion in picture books.  Warm colors (red, yellow, orange) and cool colors (blue, green, purple) can symbolize different things to children.  Consider how color conveys/complements the mood, characters, setting, and theme in the story. 4. Shape:  Different shapes can symbolize various meanings. (See free-form shapes and geometric shapes on page 119 of the textbook, paragraph 1 under “Shapes.”) 5. Texture:  Illustrators can use a combination of lines, colors, and shapes to create a particular texture in their art. 6. Design:  See page 121 in the textbook, paragraph 1, under “Design: Organizing the Visual Elements” for a full definition. 7. Artistic media:  Materials and techniques artists use to create their art. Includes ink, wood, paper, and paint; watercolor, washes, acrylics, pastels, oils, woodcuts, and collages. 8. Representational art:  Also called “realistic art.” Used to make clear references to people, objects, and nature. 9. Abstract art:  Changes and/or distorts images to emphasize certain parts of the image 10. Outstanding illustrators of note:  Barbara Cooney, Tomie dePaola, Leo and Diane Dillon, Ezra Jack Keats, Robert McKloskey, Alice and Martin Provence, Maurice Sendak; Chris Van Allsburg, and David Wiesner. (See more on page 137 of the textbook, paragraph 1 under “Additional Artists.”) 11. Art education books:  There is an increasing number of kid’s books to help children analyze and respond to art. 12. Aesthetic scanning:  See page 140 of the textbook, paragraph 1 under “Aesthetic Scanning” for a full definition. 13. Studying and investigating art:  After children have had many opportunities to study and discuss art in picture books, encourage them to make connections and figure out what inspired the artist to create the images they did. Compare them to other picture books.  Encourage children to look at the wide range of books that talk about the history of art and renowned artists.
