worn out from back to back classes 9 to noon and 1 to 4pm – plus having to get up early, etc. The kids are fun but comic book class was soooooooooooooooooo loud. those boys don’t talk they yell. Plenty of enthusiasm and they managed to get some wonderful comics finished.  I also had them make flip books and thromatropes.

In Sketchbook Drawing class Monday we did charcoal and pastels & Tuesday was graphite… Wednesday, I had the students use ink/pens & colored pencils… they are age 12-16 and are so adult. They were almost too quiet. I give them how to/samples and they just sat and worked for the 3 hours…
