Resource Roundup: Cartooning


✍🏻 πŸ’₯Resource Roundup: Cartooning⁣

Our Studio Art (art we learn to do as opposed to art that we study) is Cartooning. ⁣

I intentionally ensure that we go beyond Mason’s table to explore all of the forms of beauty and goodness that we can, and because my kids and I both love graphic novels, anime, manga, and comics, I knew that I wanted to take a deep dive into the history and construction of these worthy and widespread arts forms in our homeschool. ⁣

We’re having a blast with it, and my kids would rather learn to cartoon than to do brush drawing 100x over. 😜🀣 ⁣

Here are the resources we’re either already using or plan to use this year. ⁣
