LITERARY ILLUSTRATOR ARTIST PROGRAM
Lucky Jefferson’s Literary Illustrator Artist Program was created to cultivate educational opportunities outside of the classroom and reimagine the intersection of art and literature.

“I learned how to collaborate with other illustrators and create illustrations alongside poetry.
I learned how illustrations can both emulate the feelings of a poem without being redundant and contribute to readers’ engagement in the writing.”
WHAT STUDENTS EXPLORE
• Rendering illustrations using diverse mediums (watercolor, animation, ink, etc.)
• Generating creative awareness about published works and Lucky Jefferson

“I learned so much during my internship with Lucky Jefferson and will definitely use my new skills in my education and future work.”
Students develop new skills and a deeper understanding of publishing, their own aesthetic, and illustration concepts learned in the classroom through hands-on application and collaboration.
