Artist and cartoonist James P. Kusmierz will host a cartoon workshop at Creative 360 on Saturday, November 2 from 1-4:00 p.m. Kids from 10 years to adult will enjoy learning how to create their own cartoons from this professional who will start at the very beginning – coming up with a concept – and lead participants through to their own colorful cartoon creation on matte board. Pre-registration is required by calling 989-837-1885 or online.
James P. Kusmierz has enjoyed a lifetime in the arts serving as a freelance photographer for the Detroit Tigers from 1988 to 1993 when he took pictures for the Tiger yearbook and was commissioned to create paintings for some of the players. He freelanced for a magazine called “Sport’s Fans Journal” where he took pictures, did illustrations and created a cartoon strip. Kusmierz also taught art classes at Delta College from 1995-2014. This past June, he also delivered a fascinating presentation at Creative 360 about his experiences covering the Detroit Tigers.
