All camp sessions will be taught by cartoonist and illustrator Ellis Kim (TimeFiddler.com).

These are intermediate courses recommended for students from 10-15 years old. Students under the age of 10 or over the age of 15 will not be admitted into the class. Each session is also limited to 15 students each to allow for more in depth work and dialog with one of our working cartoonist teachers.

If a child has a special need or needs the parent or guardian can inform the Cartoon Art Museum along with their Registration so that we can better serve the child. Also, parents are not generally admitted into these classes without special need. We recommend inquiring about our private classes to attend class with your child.

Each session meets four hours each day for a 5-day week, Monday through Friday at the American Bookbinders Museum in SOMA at 355 Clementina Street.

The attendance fee for each student is $300 for non-members and $250 for members and is collected through the online registration payment*. The attendance fee covers the cost of art supplies and staff.

Up to 5 underserved students per week may attend free of charge thanks to a grant from YBCBD’s Yerba Buena Community Benefit Fund. See below for more information. ***

About Cartoon Art Museum

The Cartoon Art Museum’s key function is to preserve, document, and exhibit this unique and accessible art form. Through traveling exhibitions and other related activities—such as artists-in-residence, lectures, and outreach—the museum has taken cartoon art and used it to communicate cultural diversity in the community, as well as the importance of self-expression.

The American Bookbinders Museum is the only museum of its kind in North America, celebrating and exploring the culture and tools of bookbinding, from its earliest forms to the changes and innovations of the industrial revolution. In addition to the craft and artistry of binding, we focus on the stories of the men, women, and children who worked in binderies.
