Cartoon Camp This Summer!

The recent spate of warm weather and the dwindling number of school days left in the year have inspired many of us to make summer plans. If you’re 16 or over and an aspiring cartoonist, there’s a great opportunity that you should be aware of when scheduling your summer.

The Center for Cartoon Studies will be holding a one-week workshop this summer. The Create Comics Summer Workshop will be taking place from July 13 – 17 in White River Junction. Workshop instructors include Steve Bissette (Taboo, SwampThing), Robyn Chapman (Hey! Four eyes!) and Alec Longstreth (Phase 7). And what makes this “boot camp” for budding cartoonists even more amazing is that the Center is offering a scholarship. All you need to do is download an entry form (available at http://libraries.vermont.gov/sites/libraries/files/cbec/ccsscholarshipapp09.pdf) complete the form, and bring it to Brooks. We’ll take care of the rest. If your computer access is limited, you can also pick up an entry form from the library. Since we need to have the forms in by May 27, please have your entry ready by May 23. No more than 1 entry per person, please.

Oh, and if you’re not 16 yet but will be by June 1, you are eligible to apply!
