TelHi GRADE 2-5 CARTOONING EVENT – PART 1

I just had my first cartooning event at TelHi as part of their summer school program. The children went from 2nd grade through 5th.

They were a happy lot and were ready for a good time with each other. I was delighted with their amazing ability and enthusiasm. I plan to continue focusing on cartooning in the Fall. My hope is to help them develop their own characters. This summer I am going to work out teaching material and post it. I hope people will jump in with helpful ideas as I have never done this before.

A couple of Instagram friends sent me images of my craft projects out "in the wild"! The top image is from my SUMMER event at the SF Public Library this week, from a mom and daughter who attended. The bottom image is from a far-away friend who used to visit my library events before moving away. Her daughter still prints out my Preschool Color Stories and enjoys coloring them from afar!

After a fun-filled day at TelHi during their summer program, these preschool and 1st graders are coloring my line drawings. The story is based on my MY DOG HENRY Preschool Color Story. Like everyone else, I of course write stories about my dog, a charming yorkie named Henry. The children were terrific and inspired, although by this time they were ready for their pick me up snack!

My Summer Art & Craft Project is tomorrow at North Beach Public Library!

Tomorrow, June 20th at 2:00 pm I am doing an Art and Craft—SUMMER event at the North Beach branch of the San Francisco Public Library.

I always prepare six models for my Art and Craft projects for the North Beach Library. I have already posted four and these are the fifth and sixth. I do this many as I wish to make children realize anything is possible and the sky is the limit. As I have previously stated, the SUMMER project has endless challenges for small children and I hope will provide a relaxing and enjoyable time for their moms. I love that they jump right in with their own version!

Here are a few photos from my preschool and 1st grade summer event at TelHi. They are coloring images from my MY DOG HENRY story. I gave them line drawings inspired by my yorkie Henry. The children didn’t need any encouragement to ignore his actual coloring. I love their individuality and enthusiasm! Download my Preschool Color Stories for free here!
