Teen Think Tank (6th - 12th Grade): Inktober Cartooning

Teen Think Tank at the Jacksonville Public Library

It's Inktober! Illustrator Jake Parker created this event in 2009 to encourage people of all skill levels to draw something once a day for the month of October, and to share their drawings on social media (#inktober, #inktober2020, @inktober). You don't have to be a great artist to participate, this is something ANYONE can do, regardless of experience. The point is to improve your skills and to inspire/be inspired by others. Read on for more information and join our Inktober drawing classes!

Teen Think Tank (6th - 12th Grade): Back to School

Teen Think Tank Academy

In Drawing for Joy, author and illustrator Stephanie Peterson Jones offers beginning artists a low-stress way to build a successful daily drawing practice in just 15 minutes a day. The exercises start with a focus on simple shapes such as circles, squares, and other geometric textures, then progress gradually toward creating more realistic motifs, including florals and other natural shapes, all built with line and pattern.
