Event Details

The Milne Public Library, the North Adams Public Library, and the Solomon Wright Public Library present the Doodling Workshop Series with cartoonist Cara Bean! This playful five-part workshop invites participants ages 8-12 to draw and sketch in an open and relaxed environment. We begin with a few simple sketching games meant to inspire the imagination and naturally progress into the development of characters and settings. Then we explore basic cartooning and learn how words and pictures can come together to build a narrative. In the final week, participants write and create their own stories inspired by their drawings.
Our virtual cartooning club will meet Wednesdays on Zoom between 3:30pm and 4:30pm, beginning on October 7th and concluding on November 4th. The link will be emailed after registration.
Registration is required as space is limited. Visit http://bit.ly/DoodleFall2020 to register.
