Who is Cartoon Club for?
Is your child always doodling? Do they love to create cartoons? These are the art classes for them! At Cartoon Club for Kids we are a small, friendly group that works together in our online platform via Zoom Meeting. We’re open to anyone who likes to sit, doodle and dream up cartoons.
Cartoon Club was set up by me, artist 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.
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.
Choose from two different classes:
Cartoon Club for Kids: 1 hour class for ages 8 - 12 with a new fun, challenging, narrative cartoon theme each week.
Cartoon Club Junior: 30 minute class for ages 6 - 7 or anyone wanting a shorter, more step-by-step introduction to cartooning.
Activities include exercises such as capturing expression, using angles to add excitement, bringing characters to life with motion and telling a comic story. Each art 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 children’s imagination. My approach to cartooning is about being curious, observant and experimental. Drawing is really about learning to see. Each class takes them through the design process – children discover they can draw pictures they never imagined possible. This method not only improves their drawing ability, but also gives them the confidence to express their ideas visually and the skills to apply this thinking to other creative challenges.
