Hullo, I'm Dr. Mira Reisberg AKA the Picture Book Whisperer and now I'm whispering other things as well. I'm one of those that creativity saved and now I have a fabulous life helping others with their creativity. This is my personal website, which I tend to neglect, but here you'll find out about the children's books that I've made, my personal art, and a little about the Children's Book Academy, a fabulous online children's book writing and illustrating school that I founded way back in 2012 after leaving academia.
At the Academy we offer tons of resources including multiple blogs, contests, and scholarships for our courses. The courses, which utilize a pedagogy of pleasure to teach innovative highly interactive individually mentored courses as well as self-paced courses.
What others have said:
It was not just technique, not just personal growth, not just art history, but a fabulous combination of these things and more. ~ Michelle Lansdowne, beginning artist
I have loved every minute of this class... tackling assignments that brought me to a new direction in my work AND a type of thoughtfulness that pushed my 'inners' outwards! I will continue to explore the themes in depth for many years to come. ~ Suzy Engelman Block, professional illustrator
Mira delved into issues of subtext and story structure... offer[ing] keen insights... I left the meeting greatly inspired [with] a richer understanding of my work and my path to publication. ~ Tim McCanna, future author
