Who is Cartoon Club Party for?
Is your child always doodling? Do they love to create cartoons? This is for them! Cartoon Club Party was set up by me, author, illustrator and creativity coach, Sarah Jane Vickery, with the aim of getting more kids sharing their love of cartoons – and ultimately, having fun while building creative confidence! It is ideal for children ages 7 to 13 who are naturally creative and love to doodle.
What will we do?
I show children simple ways of creating fun cartoons. I do a demonstration and we all have a go and get warmed up. Then we work together on a theme to create a giant comic, a cartoon mural or a cartoon comic shop. If you have a theme for your party, I can incorporate this into what we create. The children can take-away the cartoons they draw and any big mural we create can be used as a party prize or decoration.
What do we need?
We need a large table to work on which will accommodate all the children at your birthday party. I provide all pencils, paper and colours. You will want to protect the table from pencil/pen marks but other than that, it’s not a messy activity and clean up is quite quick.
What will we learn?
Cartoons are a fantastic way of engaging children’s imagination. My approach to cartooning is about being curious, observant and asking questions. Children discover they can draw pictures they never imagined possible. Each party has a theme linked to a creative challenge. We have lots of fun and at the same time, children improve their drawing skills and gain confidence to express their thoughts and ideas visually. Suitable for all different ability levels.
