Israel Cartoon Museum Workshop
During Hanukkah, I conducted a few one-hour workshops with kids ages 10-12 at the Israel Cartoon Museum in the city of Holon. It was originally slated as one session with 30 participants. The holiday apparently left a lot of kids wanting for a Super-Hero drawing fix and demand rose to fill 3 sessions. It all worked out so well that we’ll be doing another set on Passover. It was especially rewarding to see so many talented children, and be able to contribute a little to how they approached drawing. A chance to promote comic books within a general audience was icing on the cake. The Museum is a wonderful haven for the comics and art lovers, and where the Joe/Andy/Adam Kubert exhibit continues. The staff was just marvelous. All in all a fine event with a promise of more to come.
