Summer Art Camp Photo Gallery: Students with their Cartoon Portraits

Once the short introductory lecture and drawing demonstration have been completed and the students are engrossed in their respective drawing/coloring activity sheets in all my Art Camps this summer, I have taken to draw as many cartoon portraits as the remaining class time allows. Given my usual sketching speed, that means that most of the students and even a few class attendants have gotten at least one custom drawing to take home as a souvenir in addition to their completed projects.
Any students missing their cartoon portraits will be the first to get drawn on my last day at their summer art camp next week. We'll be working under the African theme, so we'll draw some lions and probably some other inhabitant of the savanna like zebras or giraffes.

Good thing the Sakura Pigma Sensei drawing pens feature waterproof archival ink, for some students colored their cartoon portraits with the Crayola Super Tip markers. Thus the outlines were not blurred nor smudged by the water soluble dyes. Quick Note: Since I plan to relocate to North Carolina in the next couple of months, my last remaining scheduled ARTScool art class from August 1 to 5 at The von Liebig Art Center might be the last opportunity to attend one of my Cartoon Sketching lessons and get a souvenir cartoon portrait drawn for Naples residents.
