4 Week Cartooning Club

Description

Welcome to YA Cartooning Art Club!

This is a 4-week creative art series. Students meet once every week to brainstorm ideas, create, engage, and share!

Each week will start with a new art project, such as drawing, painting, crafting, and inventing. Our instructor will teach with a step-by-step approach where students learn basic cartooning. Once they have built a solid foundation and keep practicing, they will be able to design a multitude of unique characters and settings of their own. Students will be encouraged to engage in brainstorming techniques and discuss amongst the class their ideas for their cartoon characters and settings.

They will learn basic shape recognition as we break the shapes down in the sketching phase. The class will then move on to coloring and learn basic shading techniques. At the end of the 4-week session, students will be allowed to share their creative process and show the club their unique cartoon characters created, designed, and invented by them.

Classes are highly interactive and students will have the opportunity to socialize and share their ideas in a fun and upbeat environment.

This class is perfect for anyone who is into creative expression, writing, and art!

Reviews and Ratings

  • My son was a bit nervous and decided to switch to drawing by hand instead of the computer program... but he had a great time! The class went very fast for his age (he is just 10 yrs) but he got plenty of information to get the project done on paper. He will just have to 'play' with the sketchbook program more on his own time as well. :)

  • Excellent for children of all ages! Instructors are great!

  • My son was very proud of his finished artwork. The teacher was very detailed and patient. He is ready to take another one!

  • My daughter took this class and absolutely loved it. She is already looking into other classes on this site. Great job by kidsconnected.com!

  • My 6 year old artist loved this class ☺️. When it was over he said "that teacher was nice!" and is so proud of his final product. Will take more of these art classes.
