Students will learn that drawing cartoons, not only involves drawing the frontal position but also 3/4 view and profile. They will be asked to create their own original cartoon character showing a variety of expressions. They will then put them into a “situation” that is funny! Eventually they will create a cartoon “family”. (Human or animal or combination!) Drawing a sequence and a “flip page” in future courses will add to their challenges.  Imagination required!
