Kids create mini comics at Bluefield College cartoon workshop

Posted:

The Bluefield College Fine Arts Community School hosted a cartoon workshop for children in the community.

Today marked the last day the week-long camp that encouraged kids to use their imagination through animation.

Award-winning cartoonist Christopher Epling tought the campers basic drawing techniques as they developed mini comics and comic strips.

The children had the opportunity to design their own characters and write their own stories in a way that, Bluefiled College says, helped to develop their creativity. 

"Some people love drawing some people love writing and this just brings it all together," says Bluefield College Fine Arts Community School Coordinator Burma McChesney. "This has probably inspired a lot of people, a lot of the children to go do something like this on their own."

Bluefield College says they plan on having another cartoon workshop this fall.
