This summer I am teaching my second class on cartooning, comics and animation at PAFA (Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts) in the CE program. It's a good class of eager cartoonist and we are coming down to the last two weeks of the course. This morning as the thermometer climbed up along with the humidity, I took the class over to LOVE Park to do a little "On the spot" sketching and drawing. We sketched and doodled the people walking and having fun in the park and then went back to class and took the drawings we did and refined them making new characters out of the drawings we did in the park. It was a lot of fun and for many, their first time ever drawing or sketching in people in public.
There was a class of young watercolorists from Uarts also working in the park this morning along with a band of kids from some local school, so it was really an arts in the park morning.
