Shining Through On A Rainy Wednesday

It’s got to be the hardest thing in the world to be a museum without a physical space to have a mission to preserve, study, and celebrate a field of endeavour and have no place of your own to do those things. And while display and conservation might be necessarily taking a back seat due to being between actual galleries for the nonce, the Cartoon Art Museum won’t ever give up on the celebration and eduction aspects of its mission:

After a brief hiatus, the Cartoon Art Museum is proud to announce the return of its Saturday Cartooning Class! The Museum will host classes from its temporary office location in the Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center at 275 5th Street, San Francisco on November 14, 2015 and December 12, 2015.

That would be the temporary office space that CAM has arranged as it works towards obtaining and configuring gallery space; as educational coordinator Nina Taylor Kester puts it, We have access to spaces for multiple private lessons and an expanded and updated main classroom. And if you’ve got classroom space and a desire to not fade from the pubic eye, then a popular classroom series is really a no-brainer.

As in previous iterations, the cartooning classes are aimed at 8 – 14 year olds, and will feature skills from character design to story-boarding, leading to the creation of full mini comics. Classes are two hours long, 1:30pm to 3:30pm, and cost US$5 for CAM members/US$10 for non-members, including supplies. Reservations for the November class are open now, and space is limited; more information (including some pretty important logistics around the new location’s security policy) can be found at CAM’s website. And if that’s not enough to perk up an otherwise dreary day, I don’t know what is.

You mean I’ve been spending my time writing a couple hundred words a day like a chump just so other people can copy them and now you’ll tell me how to be a low-life bottom-feeding content thief? Yes, please!

[…] World may be found today, on the topic of Halloween. Second, the Cartoon Art Museum (which, as we noted recently, is not so much gone as couch-surfing until it finds its own place again) announced that it will be […]
