Eventbrite - The Center for Cartoon Studies 2017 Workshops

This workshop didn’t just teach me how to create comics or how to cartoon, it got me inspired!! I learned tons of valuable information that makes my comics desirable and interesting. AND I made great friends with the students and teachers. Not only is this program stuffed with crucial skills and the key to getting your own cartoons exactly how you want them, its completely fun and never a dull moment!
