CARTOONING AT TelHi RECAP – PART 1

These fun images are from my after school event at TelHi for 2nd through 5th graders. In spite of having a full day before, the children managed to rally. I had them color, write in the speech bubbles and doodle in the monster. Once they had finished, we made paper planes and flew them. Of course one ended in the radiator! It was all over in a jiffy and they ran off for their snack—such fun. Check out more images from TelHi here.

SEPTEMBER ART & CRAFT PROJECT AT THE LIBRARY – RECAP PART 2

I can't believe how much fun we all had at my ANIMAL HEADS Art and Craft event at the North Beach branch of the San Francisco Public Library. Everyone was given permanent ink drawings to color with water soluble crayons and then go mad with sticking on crazy stuff.

During my events, my favorite results come from Preschoolers when adults leave them to let their creativity run wild. I don’t think any panda has ever looked better! See more images from my Art and Craft Library events here!

SEPTEMBER AT THE LIBRARY – RECAP PART 1

It is September and I have started back up with my events at the North Beach Branch of the San Francisco Public Library. I provided drawings of animal heads in permanent ink and the children colored with water soluble crayons, sloshed water about and stuck on a million things.

I had forgotten how much fun it is seeing the children fully engaged. The expression on the small boy’s face while creating a sort of mud pie made it all worthwhile. See my future library events on my Calendar page.

ANIMAL FACES ART & CRAFT PROJECT AT THE LIBRARY THIS THURSDAY!

Animal Faces Art & Craft Project at the SF Public Library is This Thursday!

Animal Faces Art & Craft Project at the SF Public Library is This Thursday!

Please, everyone come to my ANIMAL FACES art and craft event at the North Beach branch of the San Francisco Public Library this Thursday. The fun will begin September 21st at 4:00 PM.  It will involve easy large drawings to be colored with water soluble crayons. After that, the best part, there will be millions of fun things to stick on. I am following the children’s example and coloring everything any color I choose. I have done examples of animals eating grass and leaves but ran into trouble with the lion. I could hardly show him chomping on bambi! See my other fall events on my Events page.

CARTOONING AT TelHi WITH GRADES 2-5 – Part 2

Click on an image to open a slideshow!

These 2nd through 5th graders from TelHi are a charming mixture of students from different backgrounds. These photos are from my cartooning event during their summer school program. The children got on splendidly together and fed off each other’s energy. You can see from the results how talented they are. I hope to get them back in the Fall to concentrate on working on their own characters. I will post possible ideas during the summer. See images of my other Art and Craft Projects here!
