Map Maker   Illustrator   Book Designer   Author   Teacher   Community Builder


I created a week-long workshop called Let's Make a Map which teaches students how to make their own illustrated map, for online creative playground Sketchbook Skool. I believe that maps aren’t just a way to navigate. They are a rich and expressive way to tell stories— about one's travels,  memories and family history, one's neighborhood,  favorite places to eat and shop, and so much more!

In this workshop, which consists of 18 video-taped segments, I first introduce students to myself and give them a tour of my studio and my neighborhood. Then I show dozens of examples of this beautiful art form and help them make it their own. Step-by-step, I demonstrate how to pick a topic for a map, plan, research, and draw their own personalized map. The ultimate goal is to submit an illustrated map to my website, They Draw & Travel.
