Standing Cartoons

It was early (8:15) on Monday morning. I arrived at the center ahead of schedule with chai and croissant in hand. My headphones were belting out some CFreedom, Maimouna Yussef, Nakia Henry, Rona and Teisha Marie tunes. (All very talented vocal artists, look them up!)

Contemplating on which cartooning project to have the young artist do (out of the many I have to choose from) I decided to instruct the two groups of active art campers to create a character, creature, tree or building… “Whatever you make, make sure it’s tall!” I said, megaphone like.

After sketching, coloring, inking and cutting out their work…they were given the task of making their creation stand and this is how it went:

Until next class…keep creating!
