‘Cartooning: Motion, Expression, & Meaning’ focuses on teaching 11-16 year olds how to create comics, cartoons, and illustrations that possess an obvious emotional, subjective, or kinetic quality. From the way different characters move through a space, to how a character can express an opinion or position based on physical queues, this course aims to teach both an appreciation for the qualities expressed above as a whole, as well as the skills necessary to carry out the process.
2021 will be C.J.’s eighth year teaching Comics & Cartoons Courses at The Art Garage! C.J. earned his Bachelor of Art Degree from St. Norbert College in 2014 and has had numerous successful published comic strips, the most notable of which being Rudy & Robby, as well as C.J.’s popular cartoon merchandise shop, Forged In Butter. C.J. takes pride not only in his ability to teach both kids and adults the necessary skills to create original comics and cartoons, but also in how he educates his students on how to follow one’s creative instinct, think critically, and find joy in the creative process!
