Summer 2015 (so far) recap with photos – p1

Now that Summer is in full swing I thought I would share some photos from my teaching adventures (so far).

I had a great time as I returned to teach at the Charles Schluz Museum in Santa Rosa CA. If you have not been, please give them a visit especially if you love the Peanuts characters.

schulzsummerPhoto2015While I was in the Sonoma County area I also taught at the Central Santa Rosa Library, Rincon Valley and Windsor Library. I sadly do not have any photos from my Rincon Valley visit, but hopefully will get some the next time I teach there. centralsummerPhoto2015

WindsorPhoto2015Next I return to the East Bay with one of my most challenge classes, drawing MineCraft. The video game features a world of cubes that can be ‘mined’ and made into custom worlds. chabotMinecraft2015-COLLAGE

Then it was a week of character design at the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco as part of their Cartoon Boot Camp. NOTE: The museum will be vacating their current location, so you should give them a visit before September 12, 2015.

Along the way I also taught in Hayward at the Weekes branch and at the Newark Library too.

Then this past week I back at Chabot College to cartoon Superheroes.
