FAVA @ OPL - Cartooning: An Introduction

AGES 10+

Aug 2, 4 & 9

FAVA and the Oberlin Public Library are partnering to bring this FREE workshop to the community. All materials will be provided. Registration required.

We have all seen animated cartoons on TV and in movies. Usually cartoons are funny and exaggerated, but sometimes they are very serious and lifelike. Other times, they fall somewhere between these two extremes. Before the invention of animation, however, cartoons appeared as comic strips, which means the characters were drawn in various panels, or squares, in order, which told a story of some kind. Sometimes the story was just a short joke (you can still find these types of comics in the newspaper or online as webcomics), and other times the story was complicated and was told throughout many issues of a comic book. Superhero and detective stories became popular this way. Today, graphic novels are very popular, which are really just a longer form of comic books collected into one large book. Whatever the style, comic art has become an important part of pop culture and is important because of its powers of visual storytelling. Comic artists must know how to tell a story with pictures. A comic’s quality can be measured by how effectively the artist uses pictures to tell what’s going on. In other words, if you were to take the words out of a comic, the pictures should still give you a good idea of what’s happening. In this class we will explore various types of cartoon art, and learn how it’s done!
