In Progress: A Show by Students at The Center for Cartoon Studies

InProgress_howe_flyerWeb

On Exhibit at The Howe Library Ledyard Gallery in Hanover, New Hampshire

Saturday, February 28 through Wednesday, April 29

Every year students travel from all over the world to the Upper Valley to learn about making comics and to hone their skills as artists. It is a grueling two-year M.F.A. and Certificate program, but by the time students graduate from The Center for Cartoon Studies, their abilities as draftsman and story tellers has gone through an intense transformation. The original artwork displayed at Howe Library is a taste of the kind of work being created in the program.
