Camp Forbing

Last winter, my buddy Jeff and I taught a cartooning class at Camp Forbing here in Shreveport. I’m guessing we were a hit, because they asked us back during the summer program last week! We arrived at the arts and crafts cabin bright and early, met the counselors and got paper and pencils ready to go. The morning consisted of sessions for three different age groups…Jeff and I each did a “draw-along” with the kiddos, answered questions and helped them with their work.

All in all, about 100 campers came through…whoa! Though it was tough keeping the train on the track at times, we found it really rewarding to see the budding artists’ creativity and talent and enthusiasm shining through.

The day was a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to doing it again sometime -- if you’re reading this and have a class or group of young students who want to do some drawing, drop me a line!
