Cartoon Creations, ABRAKADOODLE - PWC

Everyone loves a little whimsy! Join the Drawsters cartooning adventure!

Abrakadoodle's one-of-a-kind drawing program will introduce young artists to the creative world of cartooning by launching imaginations with spaceships and rockets, bouncing with Balloon People, and dreaming about what animals love. Students will learn about symbolism on welcome flags, explore music in the whimsical art of Sandra Boynton, and create fun geometric characters in the tradition of kid-friendly cartoon artist Ed Emberley. And no cartooning adventure is complete without the art of the comic strip! Each student will create his or her own comic frame featuring the traditional elements of characters and dialogue. Sequential lessons allow students to build drawing skills while gaining confidence.

Build a machine to test how earthquake-proof a structure is; build a gondola lift and a farm harvester. We’ll even build a fishing pole because sometimes you need a break from work!
