Walter Foster Cartooning for Kids Series

Cartooning is a great art form for young artists because of its expressive, sometimes silly, and often exaggerated nature. Now children as young as 6 can learn to be ace cartoonists, thanks to Walter Foster's Cartooning for Kids series. These books are designed to help kids develop their cartooning skills through a series of engaging, easy-to-follow, step-by-step projects. They begin by blocking out simple shapes, such as a circle or oval, and then build up to finished, full-color artworks.
