Local youth show off ‘comical’ side

sch-cartoons-2-21Move over, Snoopy. A cartooning after-school program in Greenwich recently published the eighth compilation of students’ artwork, entitled The Greenwich Cartooning Chronicles.

The publication was distributed to all Greenwich libraries and public schools earlier this month, and features cartoon drawings from more than 100 Greenwich students who participated in this year’s program. The issue features new comic strips and character drawings from contributing artists, ranging in age from seven to 17-years-old.

The eighth issue of The Greenwich Cartooning Chronicles was drawn by students from 15 schools and organizations, including Central Middle School, Cos Cob School, Eastern Middle School, Glenville School, the Greenwich Department of Parks & Recreation, Greenwich High School, Greenwich Catholic School, International School at Dundee, Julian Curtiss School, North Street School, Old Greenwich/Riverside Community Center, Parkway School, Riverside School, Western Middle School and Whitby School.

The program covers basic cartooning concepts and explores the various approaches to comic art. Coming up in 2013 there will be a special summer issue of The Greenwich Cartooning Chronicles, drawn by students who attend the Summer Cartooning Clinic at the Old Greenwich Riverside Civic Center.

To sign up for these sessions, register online at MyOGRCC.org or call 203-637-3659. For more information regarding the cartooning program, e-mail head Instructor Phil Lohmeyer at [email protected], or visit the program’s website at Greenwichcartooningchronicles.vpweb.com.
