ARTSCool Cartoon Sketching Week-7 Photo Gallery

Photo gallery of my final Cartoon Sketching class for ARTScool 2011 at The von Liebig Art Center. This group of boys and girls ranged in age from 6 to 11 years old.
Students had the opportunity to try a variety of coloring tools: markers, watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, and even some soft pastels.
Drawing from reference Xevoz kits
and fantasy chibi drawings from imagination.
Making a pop-up castle card.
Several students jumped at the opportunity to color the chibi animal characters from one of the class drawing demonstrations.
Hmm, perhaps coloring on the dry erase board should be part of the curriculum for future classes next summer.
Throughout the week all the students received several cartoon portraits and custom drawing requests as souvenirs or starting point for different inking and coloring projects.
Half of the students already got their PanPastel and Prismacolor Art Stix colored cartoon portraits, so I will complete the remaining later today. Thank you to all the students and interns that participated in one of my Cartoon Sketching classes this summer. With our impending move to North Carolina, this might just have been my last summer class at The von Liebig Art Center. It has been an honor working with all of you, and I hope that you will all continue to embrace your artistic side and keep on sketching and further developing your artistic skills. Keep on drawing and filling many sketchbooks!
