Odori Park, by Chris Watkins Odori Park - Blog


I mentioned a couple blog posts ago that I’m teaching a series of workshops and classes at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts (here in Boston’s metro west region) in November and December. The time for the eight-week Cartooning & Comics class is getting close, so I wanted to toss out a reminder that if you are, or have, a child between grades 4 and 8, please pop over to the Center website and sign up for the class. I’d love to see tons of shining faces there, ready to draw!

As a referesher, here’s the course description:
Dec. 5 through Jan. 23, Thursdays 6:30-7:30pm, Cartooning & Comics, For grades 4-8
Come learn how to put the exciting ideas in your head on paper. We’ll start with how to draw fun cartoon characters and the worlds they live in using techniques like building figures up out of basic shapes, and making drawings that look 3D with foreshortening and simple perspective tricks. We’ll explore what makes a great character design by looking at how our favorite characters are made, and we’ll learn how to create mood and emotion with facial expressions and body language. At the close of the class, we’ll dip into telling stories with pictures by making comic strips and a mini-comic book.
