Cartoon Workshop! Anyone Can Draw!

Posted by Laura Haskins - Library Director on May 9, 2016

Everyone is an artist! That was the message Seldovia kids received from cartoonist Greg Sitkowski at this weekend’s Cartoon Workshop.  About 6 students from 2nd grade through high school participated in the drawing event, while Mr. Sitkowski linked into the Library Conference Room via Skype from his home office in Florida!  The kids enjoyed discussing the distance spanned in the teleconference, as well as the weather and time differences between Alaska and Florida. They also had a lively conversation about favorite comic book characters and the new superhero movies.  But most importantly, kids discovered how to take a simple stick figure all the way to a comic book creation.  Thank you Mr. Sitkowski for sharing your time and talent with us!
