Fantastic results at my first cartooning event at TelHi Center!

I can’t resist posting yet another bunch of images from my TelHi summer school event with 2nd through 5th graders. We were learning to do cartoons. They worked well together and were terrific fun. One of them told me my Fritzy Bang Bang character was a knock-off—there is always a critic in the room!

I hope to continue leading cartoon events with TelHi children in the Fall, helping them with their own characters and stories. I will post my prompt ideas during the summer and will appreciate any comments as this is new to me. Check out my NEW page about Cartooning at TelHi!

CARTOONING AT TelHi with GRADES 2-5 – PART 3

I recently participated in TelHi’s summer school program with 2nd through 5th graders. Even though they had enjoyed many events before mine, they showed a studious camaraderie and attacked the project. I was gobsmacked by their talent and creativity.

I am teaching them cartooning and in the Fall want them to work on their own characters and stories. I will post some of my teaching prompts during the summer and will welcome and suggestions as this is new to me. See more images from my Art and Craft events here.

This is BULLY BUSTER, one of my favorite Color and Write Story protagonists. I am going to try him out June 15th at TelHi. I have created a summer event for 2nd to 5th graders. I hope the children will find learning how to draw cartoon characters interesting. I will give them a felt tipped pen to draw over the guidelines. If it is a success, I will move on to working with them on their own characters. I will post the results. Fingers crossed!!

This is the third page of my BULLY BUSTER AND THE PUPPIES coloring story. Bully Buster the dragon robot superhero flies around the world stopping bullies of any kind when he sees them. This is the happy conclusion of his confrontation with a meanie big bad dog. Children can color the page and write any silly thing they wish in the speech bubbles.

This is the second page of my BULLY BUSTER AND THE PUPPIES coloring story. On this page Bully Buster the dragon robot superhero confronts the meanie big bad dog who tries to steal from the puppies.

This is a story that you get to write by filling in the speech bubbles. As this is for children just beginning to write, I have filled in some of the speech bubbles. You can say any silly thing you wish with the rest of the speech bubbles and make the story your own. Download this and more coloring stories for free on my Bully Buster page.
