How to Create a Single-Panel Cartoon

Wednesday, March 24th, 5pm-6pm PT / 8pm-9pm ET

In this hour-long session, students will learn key cartooning principles, theories, and approaches that will prepare them to dream up their own cartoons. We’ll do generative prompts together and then draw and share our funny thoughts and sketches (no experience necessary).
