Drawing stimulates both halves of the brain. It teaches open ended thinking and creates an environment of questions, creativity and imagination. Drawing teaches working towards a sense of accomplishment, it builds connections and confidence through sharing. When a child creates, the world seems limitless, the possibilities are endless and when we nurture and encourage this, we are encouraging greatness.
Drawing cartoons is an effective way to reach a child’s mind on their own level. Cartoons are something they can get excited about, something they feel they can relate to and since it is based around basic shapes and simplicity of lines, it is also a form of art that they can, realistically, tackle with confidence.
Drawing for cartoons and animation is actually rooted in Lifedrawing, one of the most discipline heavy fundamentals of great artists. Cartoon Coach is an ongoing discipline not unlike Music or Karate. Classes are developed around a strong foundation that is revisited and reviewed often.
