Graham Braddock – How to Draw Cartoons and Animation


Cartoons and Animation Part 1

How to Draw Cartoon Faces

Drawing faces and figures comes very naturally to almost all children (in many cases, prior to their learning writing skills).

They can also discover the fun of acting and creating faces that express character and emotion.

This helps children to think and draw creatively and confidently – a valuable skill that can then transfer into other subject areas.

Cartoons & Animation Part 2

How to Draw Cartoon Figures

Children are introduced to inventing cartoon characters. They also gain some understanding of how to put life and movement (animation) into the characters that they create.

Learning the art of visual story telling can add interest and a wonderful extra dimension to children’s written work.


Presented by well known professional artist –

Graham Braddock

Graham’s Workshops have inspired many thousands of NZ children with a simple, step by step approach to drawing. Your child will learn valuable practical skills, gain increased confidence and will create drawings to be proud of.
