2:00 pm: Peanuts and the Art of Cartooning workshop: This live, interactive experience includes an introduction to Charles M. Schulz, Peanuts, and the Schulz Museum followed by a guided drawing of several of Schulz’s most popular characters. Participants will need paper, a pencil, an eraser (drawing supplies will be provided), and their imagination as they learn to draw Snoopy and other Peanuts characters along with the basics of drawing different emotions and using the visual language of cartoons to tell stories. This event will be presented by our friends at the Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California, which is spearheading the international Schulz centennial celebration.
