Cartooning Studio is an action-packed 5-day cartooning intensive, ideal for adults and college students (with a for-credit option). Through lectures and classroom exercises, CCS faculty will cover the basics of visual storytelling and developing your own unique cartooning voice. This is a goal-orientated workshop in which students are given the support necessary to create and self-publish their own independent project.
Cartoon Studio runs 12pm-6pm ET. While it might be possible to work while attending some workshops, it’s not generally recommended since many workshops include studio projects that can be worked on outside of the workshop hours.
