Summer Cartooning and Comic 2015 classes – photo recap part 2

Well, for many of us Summer is just about over. I know it technically it is only the middle of summer, but things are winding down for those who have there schedule dictated by when school years start and end.

Don’t forget you can see Part 1 of my photo recap post HERE

Next up was a visit to the historic library in the town of Niles, best known as a place where classic hollywood legend Charley Chaplin filmed many movies. The library is only open one day for those of you who might want to visit this historic small town.

That same day it was off to teach at the downtown Hayward Library. They will be breaking ground on a new building very soon, should be really nice. Hayward2015-COLLAGE

The next day, July 15 it was TWO classes at the Irvington Library branch in Fremont CA. This is another library that is only open one day a week, and was pretty busy.

Then a couple of days later I was in the lovely town of Sebastopol CA. Lots of cool art stuff going on in the area for those who are looking for a car trip this fall.

Then I was at the San Leandro Library for TWO kids workshops, one teen workshop and one for ADULTS. All four workshops had a Superhero theme.

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.
