The Great River Regional Library in Kimball invites children in grades six through 12 to learn how to draw Anime style cartoon art 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8. The workshop will take place at the Kimball High School Art Room. If you have ever wanted to create your own cartoon or learn how to draw your own cartoon character, take this workshop and learn what it takes to be an illustrator and author of your own book. The workshop will include character and story outline development, comic drawing techniques, and layout options. The group will look at and learn about comic book history and artists. It will be useful for students to bring a short story to work with and/or any existing artwork they may want to use. Basic materials will be provided.
