Workshop: Try Your Hand at Cartooning!
Time & Location
About this event
Join internationally acclaimed political cartoonist Pedro X. Molina for a workshop on expressing yourself visually by creating a cartoon. Gather paper and whatever you’re comfortable with – pencil, markers, watercolors, even a digital tablet. Drawing experience is helpful but not necessary.

He also contributed to various books published in the Gallimard/Cartooning for Peace collection. Among his many awards is a 2019 Maria Moors Cabot Prize from Columbia Journalism School and the 2018 Courage in Editorial Cartoon Award from Cartoonists Rights Network International.
