Art Of Cartooning At Seaside Library
The Queens Borough Public Library will present a two-session workshop in September at its Seaside Branch on The Art of Cartooning with Robert Sarnoff, the editorial cartoonist for the city’s oldest weekly newspaper located in the Rockaways, The Wave. All skill levels are welcome to attend. Materials will be provided.
The workshop will discuss how to create characters and exploring different drawing techniques.
Robert Sarnoff is the author/illustrator of ‘Cartoons/Comics/Ideas and Techniques.’ He has taught cartooning at Kingsborough Community College’s Adult Education Division and in 1994, was named Art Educator of the Year by the United Federation of Teachers and the New York City Art Teachers Association. Recently, Queens Public Television’s Channels 56 and 74 aired a one-hour special featuring about 100 of Mr. Sarnoff’s paintings, drawings, prints, including some cartoons. The broadcast featured his interview, his studio and gallery tour and highlighted the U.S. Postal Service’s selection of his watercolor as a matted print / cache / cancellation stamp. An unveiling ceremony honoring Mr. Sarnoff and his art took place on August 11 on the boardwalk of Beach 116 Street in Rockaway.
The Art of Cartooning will be held on Monday, September 20 and 27 at 6:00 p.m. at the Seaside Branch Library, located at 116-15 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Rockaway Park; 718-634-1876.
