KT 10-F20 | Character Creations! Toony Animals Workshop by Shelby Pyrzyk ‘20


Course Description

NEW! Are you tired of being cooped up? Are you dreading being stuck inside during those cold winter nights wracking your brain for things to do with your little ones? Do you have a young person in your life who loves ART? Or perhaps you yourself are young at heart? Well Maine College of Art’s Office of Continuing and Professional Studies has teamed up with the Master of Arts Teaching (MAT) Program’s Teacher Candidates to bring you something extra special this holiday season: KITS FOR KIDS! 

The MAT program is a graduate program training future art educators to teach art for any age, from Kindergarten to High School Seniors, and they’ve imagined some special treats for you this winter..Each kit is meticulously packed with MECA-approved art supplies designed to walk you or your little one through a specific Art Lesson recorded and curated by one of our Art Teachers-in-Training. Our kits come with everything you need to complete a full art project, including an exclusive, password-protected instructional video made by one of our very own Art Teachers to walk you through the art project step-by-step. Many of the kits have enough materials to create the art project many times over! 

Pre-Order your kits today and reserve your spot for this limited opportunity to experience the unique quality and innovation of a MECA Art Studio in the comfort of your home. We will begin mailing out kits on December 1st. We will continue to reserve and mail out kits until supplies run out.



Create your very own Cartoon Animals with Shelby Pyrzyk, a MECA graduate and current MAT graduate student. Shelby will show you how the professionals do it! Using the same tools and supplies cartoonists use to develop their hilarious creations, you will learn to draw cartoon creatures with this instructional kit. 

Recommended for ages 12-18.
