Teach Cartooning with the Fast and Easy Cartooning for Fun! Handbook.
The Fast and Easy Cartooning for Fun! handbook presents games and skill-building lessons, illustrated with examples by students, the author, and professional cartoonists. The book alternates art games with see–and-do skills acquisition activities. Students quickly develop the ability to draw funny faces, move bodies through space, and tell multi-panel stories.
The detailed lessons and lesson plans enable teachers to incorporate cartooning into their lesson plans. Professional cartoonists can make more money teaching cartooning!
Based on twelve years of cartooning workshops, author/instructor Robert Gluckson has a Master’s degree, in Popular Culture!
