Who is Cartoon Club for?
Is your child always doodling? Do they love to create cartoons? This is the online drawing class for them! At Cartoon Club for Kids we are a small, friendly group that draws together on our online platform via Zoom. We’re open to anyone who likes to sit, doodle and dream up cartoons.
Cartoon Club was set up by me, artist Sarah Jane Vickery, with the aim of helping more kids learn to draw by sharing their love of cartoons – and ultimately, having fun while building creative confidence.
What will children learn?
Children will enjoy fun doodling challenges, cartoon drawing exercises and learn techniques from my Doodle Colour Discover workbook inspiring curiosity and a creative mindset.
Cartoon Club for Kids: 1-hour online drawing class for ages 8 - 12 with a fun, challenging, narrative cartoon theme each week.
Drawing lessons include capturing expression, using angles to add excitement, bringing characters to life with motion, and telling a comic story. Each drawing class for kids has a theme linked to a creative challenge to help children discover a style all their own. The online class is designed for the given age ranges but it's up to you as to which class type your child is best suited for.
Cartoons are a fantastic way of engaging kids' imagination. My approach to cartooning is about being curious, observant and experimental. Drawing is really about learning to see. Each drawing class leads students through the design process – children discover they can draw pictures they never imagined possible. This method not only improves drawing ability but also gives children the confidence to express their ideas visually and the skills to apply this thinking to other creative challenges.

“Very enjoyable and I learnt how to draw better too, she was really nice .” Says my daughter age 11.

We thought it was a really well structured class, but still had alot of room for creativity. It worked well as a zoom class too and was surprised how interactive it was still between the kids. Well done Sarah, you are a great teacher!
My daughter loved Sarah’s session in person during half term and enjoyed it on Zoom too during lockdown! Sarah is gentle yet instructive and a super teacher. It is lovely to have something so creative and interactive available for the children to do.
Sara Donnelly –
This was a lovely way to spend an afternoon – the children really enjoyed the session and it had a nice theme (Night at the Zoo). By creating a comic strip Sarah even managed to get my reluctant writer to do a little writing too! My son lost focus a little near the end as a full hour is a little long for him to concentrate, but I was surprised he was as engaged for as long as he was – thank you and we will see you again! 🙂
Karen Shatford –
Amazing class. My daughter loved it. Continued to work on her project for 3 hours after class was over!
Frankie loves these sessions and is always excited to start one
My daughter really enjoyed this class after school and was keen to sign up for the Zoom class. It works really well with Zoom and is something special, just for her. She says she likes making different characters. It inspires her and is just a lovely, fun, creative thing to do! Thank you Sarah for providing some space to be!

My 9 year old son has joined the weekly online class since the beginning of lockdown and is really enjoying it. He’s loving the different characters and topics and his drawing has really improved. Really varied and interesting classes with a brilliant teacher. Thanks so much Sarah.
My Daughter Loves her online classes and thinks they are amazing and is always so happy and confident after them. The classes have been a real comfort during lock down and her drawing skills have enhanced so much.
My daughter really enjoyed the Kids Cartoon Club class. Sarah is a lovely teacher. Patient, very creative and great at engaging kids as well as stimulating their creativity.
Our daughter loves Sarah’s online classes and always comes away with a great cartoon and a confidence boost. Sarah also did a cartooning session for her birthday party which went really well and kept 15 9 year olds amazingly quiet and happy!

“it was brilliant and I loved it!” – Henry 6 and 1/2
This was an amazing class and an amazing experience for our daughter. My daughter has asked to be signed up for multiple classes. We are looking forward to seeing more of her work. Great confidence booster. Thank you for such a wonderful service Sarah!

My daughter loves to draw (she definitely fits the bill of doodling all of the time), and she loved having an opportunity to take one of these courses. Sarah was welcoming and fun, encouraging and interactive, which is often difficult to accomplish virtually. She challenged the students to bring out their own creativity and originality in their work. It was so wonderful to see my daughter having such a positive experience, and being excited about something after facing so many disappointments this year. It was a boost to her confidence and also her outlook. I was also pleased to find out about the many offerings for adults, as well. We are very much looking forward to doing more!
Sarah Jane Vickery –
That’s terrific that she finds it stretches her creatively. Super! It’s just as fun in the adult class. Do come along!
Susanne Gibson –
Toby has absolutely loved the Junior Art Classes! Sarah is so lovely with him online and so positive, giving suggestions to improve and making it exciting and fun. She always includes every child and gives them the chance to show off their work. This is a calming session for Toby and a lovely start to our weekends. We would certainly be interested in other opportunities face to face if and when these arise. Thank you!
Sarah Jane Vickery –
I’m so pleased that Toby is getting so much out of the Junior class. I love teaching it and he is a pleasure to work with. It’s wonderful to know that he finds the drawing calming. Me too! I’ll keep everyone posted in my newsletter when I have live workshops again.
Robyn Taylor –
So much fun. Sarah’s class is fun and my kids learned a lot. The interactive easy pace was especially enjoyable. I would highly recommend.
The adult class was fun! It was also relaxing. Great stress relief! Thank you.
Moksha enjoyed the cartoon club and first time she did explored drawing cartoon in online class. Thank you very much Sarah for wonderful class.
Andrea Cleaver –
Sarah’s classes are fantastic! Both of my kids (ages 11 and 8) absolutely enjoyed the weekly hour of creativity and fun themes. They loved the fact that Sarah asked for input, and remained fully focused for the full hour. Highly recommended!
Sarah Jane Vickery –
They are so creative and a pleasure to have in class!
Helen Mortimer –
I work for Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre, Sarah kindly ran a free kids’ session for us as part of Dyslexia Awareness Week. I listened in and was soon hunting around for a pencil and paper so that I could take part too. I had a lovely time and so did the children. I was a very relaxing experience to spend time doodling and drawing. Everything I drew came out much better than I’d expected! Sarah was brilliant with the children; they were happily offering ideas, adding little fun details to their own drawings and were all engaged for the whole hour. Not everyone wanted to show their work but each child had the opportunity and it was fine if they didn’t want to. The whole experience was positive and creative for the bolder as well as the shy children and there was no feeling that you had to keep up – you could work at your own pace. Thank you, Sarah!
Sarah Jane Vickery –
Thank you Helen for the kind words! I really enjoyed giving this workshop and was so pleased to help out for Dyslexia Awareness Month. How terrific that you felt inspired yourself. Outstanding!
Diana Papp –

We joined in at a zoom party! It was really interesting and captivating, excellent at keeping the focus, and very easy to follow and understand instructions! Overall extremely happy.
Maria Bartolo –
Sarah kindly set up a class especially for my 11 yr old son and his friends and they are loving it. Its a chance to work together with a lovely experienced tutor and is informative and relaxed. Id encourgae anyone to form their own tailored group it works really well. Sarah is relaxed and encouraging and so sets a great environment for them – far away from the pressures of online learning.
Sarah Jane Vickery –
Thank you Maria! Your group is a pleasure to work with – such keen and creative children!
My son who is 12 started with a group of children.
He has been encouraged and inspired by working in a group.
They can share ideas, their own work & also work together.
It is a fabulous way to learn.
Sarah is very approachable & my son feels at ease to ask questions.
Huge Thank you.
Natalie Hall-Jones –
My son loves his sessions with Sarah. They are relaxed and interactive, Sarah includes him and all his friends in the groupwell and he can put his suggestions forward without fear of seeming silly. She has a gentle calming voice too and that puts them all at ease! I would definitely recommend her.
My daughter looks forward to class every week. She absolute loves it and is so proud of finishing a drawing each Saturday. It has really opened a silver lining in this year of zoom calls. All the other classes she can’t seem to pay attention, but Cartoon Kid Club she is active and participating and looking forward to it. Thank you, Sarah!
Sarah Jane Vickery –
I’m so pleased that she is enjoying class. She’s so keen and creative – wow! A pleasure to have in Cartoon Club!
Diana Bosnjak –
My niece loves Cartoon Club! Sarah is a wonderful and encouraging teacher. Highly recommend.
Ruth Jubert –
We all LOVED our private session with you Sarah. Thank you for making our friend’s birthday celebration so special. Even at our advanced years, we all learned new skills and you were very tolerant of us – though I must say we were all much quieter than we usually are as we were concentrating so hard! Thank you for a marvellous morning treat.

My sons (6 and 8 years old) are loving the virtual classes, which are fantastic for us as we live in Switzerland. Both boys have also started drawing more (and without any prompting) in their spare time!
Margarita (verified owner) –
Wonderful class my two boys 11yrs old talk about the class all day yesterday they can’t wait to have next class thanks
Catherine Masterman (verified owner) –
My 9 year old loves this class and the focus has really kept her going during lockdown. Sarah is so encouraging and enthusiastic in the way she leads the classes and involves all the children and my daughters drawing skills have really improved. I would and do thoroughly recommed the classes.
Sarah Jane Vickery –
Catherine thank you so much! I’m so pleased that she’s getting so much out of Cartoon Club!

We had really been struggling to find something for our daughter to do whilst she was shielding and not attending school; finding you in a random google search has been just wonderful.
She really looks forward to Thursdays and finding a creative outlet for her is great and we saw an almost instant improvement in her mental health and self esteem…..we also love seeing what your group have created each week. She has always loved drawing and we are just so proud that she has got the courage up to share the drawings that she does.
It has been so great that we were very happy for you to host her virtual birthday party; I had a number of parents contact me to say how much their girls had enjoyed it….considering the circumstances it was a pretty great party and as a bonus there was no mess to clear up! I would really love to have one myself.

Excellent. Creative, fun and insightful. My nine year old loved it and we will be signing up for more classes.
My 8 yo son loves drawing but he hates online classes. He was a bit skeptical but reluctantly agreed to give it a try. He attended his first class on Saturday and really loved it. He asked to join the next one. It is very interactive, fun, enjoyable, and the kids feel engaged despite the screen barrier. My son is now working on a new character to show Sarah and his classmates. He is very excited for his next class. I highly recommend it.

My son connects has been enjoying these classes for a few months now. He is very interested in cartooning and the classes gives him tools to organize his thoughts and be creative at the same time. Thanks Sarah!.
Shonagh Douglas (verified owner) –
My daughter really enjoys these classes – great mix of tips and new ideas along with lots of choice and using own creativity.
Liz Conway –
Sarah is F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C, my daughter loves the class. She is so happy and Sarah has a wonderful way with children. We are begging for a summer camp, the class participation is relaxed, very involved and the blend of learning and having fun is seamless………….Sarah is supreme!
James Hodges –
Sarah Jane-Vickery kids drawing classes have been a great way of enabling our son to engage with cartoon drawing and disengage with screens. He’s been taking part now for most weeks for nearly 2 years. I believe these classes have brought our sons drawing on immensely. Sarah is clear, patient and gives positive feedback to all the children on work that’s completed.
Bhumi (verified owner) –
My 10 year old daughter, Dhruva, has joined the cartoon club from couple of months. Sarah always comes up with new innovative idea that helps Dhruva to stretch her imagination. The important thing is that she feels excitement to attend the session every week.
Jesslyn (verified owner) –
Amazing sessions for creative cartooning fun. My 9 year old loves the time dedicated to cartoon together, and to share his ideas with the group. Sarah is an inspiration, and helps plan out the process of cartooning with unique themes and characters. Thank you!
Laura Sealy (verified owner) –
My 10 year old really loves Cartoon club. He was a little nervous before the first one but Sarah created such a relaxed, inclusive and fun session, he’s been looking forward to it each week ever since and is really proud of his creations.
