This Friday, the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco is hosting spring cartooning classes for kids, teens and parents.
Inspired by the exhibitions of Oscar nominated films Song of the Sea and Secret of Kells, these classes are an opportunity for kids to enjoy with their parents, and for teens to enjoy independently. And along with them emphasing experimentation, fun and collaboration, the classes are also educational and interactive with the art of storytelling.
All classes will include admission to the museum (so visitors can check out what’s on view), as well as materials. The first class to take place is the parent-child class titled “Magical Places, Maps and Scrolls”. This is where kids and parents work together to draw whimsical and mystical landscapes inspired by the worlds from The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea. The cost is ten dollars per person regardless of age, and it is for kids ages seven to twelve with responsible parent or guardian. Cartoon Art Museum also ask there will are no more than two kids per adult.
The next class to take place is the teen class titled “Mythic Heroes in Mixed Media”. Teens can explore drawing fantastical characters of heroism and magic, by using a mix of tools to create texture, pattern and color. Inspiration will come from the Songs and Secrets exhibition. The cost is $35 per student and $30 for members.
