Madison Square Park

Photos by Alison Clemente

Weather in NYC this past July has been mostly hot, but frequently perfect.

A few Saturdays ago, the morning weather could not have been better when I was invited by the Madison Square Park Conservancy to conduct drop in cartooning activities on a lawn near the playground.

Ably abetted by their resident teaching artist, Alison Clemente (unseen here behind the camera), I helped children and their parents and caregivers create comic strips, panel sequences, pop-up pictures, and other images.

This girl had just come from the Minions movie.

A good time was, I believe, had by all, including me. Many thanks to Miriam Fodera, Family Programs Manager, for reaching out.
I love my job.

Here's the flyer I handed out that day, still true:

Adults eager to cartoon should check out my SVA Continuing Ed courses for fall, enrolling right now.
