|Teaching artist Katherine Gressel and RHCJC students exploring "Cuba: My Revolution" at Kentler.|
During the gallery visit students explored the content of the artwork through discussion and hands-on art activities. In their follow up art making sessions, students are learning about symbols, figure drawing, layout, drafting, and composition to created their own original comic-inspired artworks. Our goals in these workshops are for young people to have a positive experience making art, to feel more confident expressing themselves, and to have a better sense of what goes into being an artist both personally but also professionally. Since the workshops are mostly focused on art making, we decided to invite Dean Haspiel to talk to the students about the more professional side of being a cartoonist.
Dean's talk took the students through his development from when he got his first drawing gig to the present.
|One on one with the kids. Great questions. Great answers.|
