Create your own cartoon characters! Getting our inspiration from the masters of cartooning, students will create and develop their own cartoon characters. Terry will teach you the art of cartooning, from exaggerating emotions, and different pen techniques to creating your own world for your characters. This class will be held outside under WAA's tents and will be limited to 6 students.
Terry started her art career in Detroit as a cartoonist. Her cartoon strip "Clem's Classics" ran in five different Midwestern newspapers. She's been teaching cartooning to different age groups both overseas and in the Plymouth area for over ten years.

Terry Kole - Out & About with Teerns
Out & About for Teens - Ages 12 to 16
Terry Kole
Monday - Friday, July 13 - 17
9:30 - 11:30 AM
Cameras and sketchbooks in hand, let’s go discover the coolest nooks and crannies in Wickford. Weather permitting, we will scour downtown Wickford in search of the perfect picture to sketch and paint. We will take our own photographs for reference and sketch on site and paint if time allows. Terry had her first successful Out & About camp with local teens last summer. They visited the waterfront beach, the kayak pond and bridge, the harbor and painted with coffee outside Shayna's Place. We're hoping to include the historical houses on Main Street this summer.
Class size limited to 6 students.
