I offer these online courses.


The Tangle Fairy by Shelley Kommers "Kristen’s class is just what I needed to transform my book idea it into something real. I was looking for inspiration and an extra push to make sense of my notes and sketches, and I found it in her insights, prompts, and recommendations. It was amazing to have a published author and illustrator give me tips that I couldn’t find online or in any book — it was invaluable! I highly recommend Kristen’s course, I’d take it again in an instant."

Taban's Journey by Elizabeth Wood "Kristen’s course is excellent and thorough. She is very present and supportive in the online classroom which is tremendously helpful as students are developing ideas, sketches, and finished work for their projects. She provided concrete, clear guidance that was not overwhelming in the weekly lessons, to get across every aspect of creating a children’s book from the anatomy of the book, to pacing the story, and how various imagery is used to convey the story...

Taban's Journey by Elizabeth Wood If one wants to learn exactly how to create a children’s book from idea, story and art to a completed book, this is the class to take. I highly recommend this course, it was a fantastic experience, and Kristen has deep knowledge and enthusiasm for children’s books, storytelling and art.
