To Introduce
Cartooning as a unique American art,which not only entertains  
but interprets and reflects our American culture.

To Develop
Children's appreciation of their academic subjects. Through  
examples and discussion we will show how the cartoonist
uses all of these academic subjects in the development of a  
cartoon strip and other cartoon product applications

To Show
That not only must one be artistic and creative to be a cartoonist,  
but that what they learn today in school is utilized and needed in  
every day situations, even in the bizarre world of cartooning.

To Give
Hands on art instruction using basic art principles to draw
various cartoon faces and figures utilizing different methods.

To Explain
The type of art materials, techniques and the step by step  
processes that are followed producing various printed
materials using cartoons.

To Help
Develop the child's natural talents and understanding of the  
many artistic elements, such as drawing realistically, and how  
perspective and anatomy are used to make cartoons.

They will learn that although Cartoonists may work in a very  
simple fashion, a lot of formal art training precedes this.
