Cartooning program celebrates 10 years in Greenwich

The Greenwich Cartooning Chronicles after school program is hosting its first fund-raiser, Toons For Ten, to raise camper scholarships for the Greenwich Music & Art Camp’s 2014 season. The event, free for all participants and co-sponsored by the town, is on Saturday, May 17 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Eastern Greenwich Civic Center.

The fund-raiser’s goal is to provide 10 camper scholarships while also celebrating a decade of drawing toons in town. To commemorate the occasion, The Greenwich Cartooning Chronicles is publishing a special edition of the newsletter’s 10th issue to be distributed free of charge at the event. The latest issue features new comic strips and character drawings from omore 100 local contributing student artists ranging from six to 14 years old.

The Toons For Ten fund-raiser will also feature cartoon art on display drawn by students from over 15 schools and organizations, including Central Middle School, Cos Cob School, Eastern Middle School, Glenville School, Greenwich Music & Art Camp, Greenwich High School, Greenwich Catholic School, International School at Dundee, Julian Curtiss School, New Lebanon School, North Street School, Old Greenwich/Riverside Community Center, Parkway School, Riverside School, Western Middle School, Winward School and Whitby School.

This event will feature free activities donated by various local sponsors. Contributions to the Toons For Ten event include painting stations by Painting With a Twist, character drawing by Greenwich Cartooning Chronicles, food by Garden Catering, décor by Avon Theatre, costumed characters by Beyond Costumes, music & entertainment by Huddle Up Sports, prizes by Vineyard Vines and Greenwich YMCA, photography by Jack Dog Studio, printing by Minuteman Press of Greenwich, event planning by Golden Events, funding by A.G.
