A Very CCS July!

Tue 7/2/2019

This week I'm heading back to White River Junction, Vermont for my fourteenth consecutive year being a faculty member of the summer workshops at The Center for Cartoon Studies.

This will be the third summer I've taught my Introduction to Hand-Drawn Animation workshop. It's so much fun for me to share my love of animation for a week, and it's always great seeing the work that the students create. I'm very lucky this summer to have current CCS student Tim Patton as a teaching assistant. Together we're gonna help the students get their drawings moving!

As part of my work as CCS's Director of Academic Outreach, I'm also helping CCS run their first-ever Kickstarter campaign this month. The goal is to raise $6,000 to help take their new comic book, This Is What Democracy Looks Like, out on a tour to share it with high school students around the USA. This project uses the power of comics to clarify how our government works, and the workshops will help empower young people to get involved at the local level.

It's projects like these, which I really believe in, which make it very rewarding to work for CCS!
