Due to popular demand, the Cartoon Art Museum is offering another installment in its ongoing series of workshops for aspiring comic artists, writers and fans of all ages. Each class is taught by a professional cartoonist focusing on an area of his or her expertise, ranging from character creation and story development to writing and drawing comic books and strips.
Brian Kolm, creator of the comic book series Beyond the Great Chimney, will be teaching the next workshop, “I Can’t Draw!” Cartooning Basics for Grown-Ups.
Itâˆ‚s never too late to learn how to draw. âˆI Canâˆ‚t Drawâˆ‘ is a cartooning class aimed at adults who would like to learn more about Cartooning but feel they canâˆ‚t even draw a straight line. Join Cartoonist Brian Kolm in a fun two-and-a-half hour class on the basics of cartooning. Kolm’s class covers all the FUN-damentals of drawing cartoon characters, including shape and structure, poses and attitude.
