🔎 Virtual Class Details

If you love cartoons, anime culture, and video games, then you’ll enjoy our Beginner Cartooning for Kids class! This live online art class is an easy and creative way for children to start developing their creativity and self-expression starting from age 6 and up. While this cartooning class is recommended for kids, adults who are complete beginners are also welcome to join the fun and learn the basics!

🤓 What to Expect in Class

Every week, your artist instructor will introduce a different cartoon or anime style character, item, or background by following the creative process and techniques for the art of visual storytelling. During your 1 hour virtual art lesson, your instructor will demonstrate how to draw the cartoon step by step, as well as provide personal feedback and guidance to support each student.


Most beginner cartooning projects will be completed in a single class, and kids are encouraged to submit their cartoon creations to Google Classroom with the help of a parent to get written feedback from their instructor if they need additional time to work on their artwork after the live class — perfect for students in grades 1 to 3.


This is an ongoing weekly class. Join in virtually anytime!
