Cartooning Classes with Gareth Gaudin (ages 8-12)

Gareth started cartooning when he discovered comic books in 1978. He was five years old. He grew up to not only own a comic book shop but also to draw comic books for a living. He has also taught cartooning classes for the past 20 years at such venues as The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, The Royal British Columbia Museum, The Robert Bateman Centre, Poppet Creative, The YMCA, and in his own cartooning school at Legends Comics’ Back Room Studio. Join him for these fun sessions at Oaklands Community Centre where he’ll show his techniques and tricks to creating interesting cartoons, comic strips, and comic books. Creating characters, drawing with ink and ink wash, and telling stories about being a globe-trotting cartoon journeyman. Gareth is perhaps most well known for The Perogy Cat and The Monster Sisters, but wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve never heard of him at all. No experience required.
