I'm teaching a new series of cartooning classes for older teens and adults this March.
North Berwick, Maine - The Magazine Gag Cartoons course at the Noble Adult and Community Education; 4 Wednesday evenings in March 6, 13, 20 and 27, 2013. Time: 6-7:45pm. Registration is at the link.
This is going to be a hands-on, grounded class in how to tap in to your creative powers. If you have ever looked at newspaper cartoons or cartoons in a magazine and told yourself, "I can do a cartoon better than this!" -- Then this is the class for you.
Magazine Gag Cartooning 101
The students learn
- drawing techniques,
- the fundamentals of constructing a magazine gag cartoon,
- and creating their own cartoons.
