Cartooning for Adults 50+ — a Program for Adults 50+. Register at https://mcpl.events/cartooning
Create your original characters, caricatures, one-panel gag cartoons, and comic strips.
Experiment with pen-and-ink techniques and play around with all the elements of a cartoon: figure and background drawing, perspective, lighting, lettering, composition, and dialogue. This virtual workshop is designed for residents 50+.
Registration and attendance to all 5 sessions are required (October 12, October 19, October 26, November 2 and November 9, 2022). Space is limited to 20 participants age 50+.
Art supply kits to be used during the classes will be provided to registered attendants. Kits need to be picked up from the Wheaton Library before the first session and be returned to this library after the last session.
Please register every member of your household that needs a kit.
Only register if you are able to pick up a kit(s). You must have a kit to participate.
Once you are registered, please contact/visit the Wheaton Library (240-777-0678) to pick up your kit. Supplies are limited so we can only provide kits to registered attendants. If any participant is registered and cannot attend, please contact the Wheaton Library to cancel the registration so that individuals on the waiting list can participate. Customers on the waiting list will be contacted if space/supplies become available.
These classes are in partnership with artist Leila Cabib and funded in part by a Wheaton Cultural Project Grant from the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County.
