    Cartooning Comics Ed MurrCartooning for 3rd-6th grade
    Taught by Ed Murr
    Thursdays, 5pm-6:15pm, January 10 to March 28

    For both returning and new students! Explore the fundamental process of character creation using shape construction to develop the form of the character, while considering the personality of the character and how it informs the shape. Students will turn these characters into a cartoon drawing with a world created entirely by them.  A full character has a world in which they live and students will explore perspective as a tool to build their character's individual world. From there they will introduce these characters into a story of their own creation as they explore the language of comics and sequential storytelling. Perfect for kids interested in comics, cartooning, animation and storytelling!! All supplies included.

    If you have questions about the class curriculum, please contact Ed directly at ed@edmurr.com.
