Do you enjoy cartoons? Do you have any favorite cartoons or cartoonists? Have you ever wanted to create your own cartoons? Every one of us can draw and cartoon. Alan has been tracing, copying or creating cartoons since he was about 2 years old and it has always been a fun way for him to capture notes or memories.

The goal in the class is to help you begin to create your own cartoon characters, panels, strips and have fun doing it during each class. Students will focus on cartoons while learning to draw or improve their drawing skills. Class exercises, challenges & one-on-one time will also help you begin to capture your own humor in drawings.

Come have fun cartooning!
