When I was a kid, I used to write and draw my own comic books featuring characters like Lightning Man, Lava Boy, Stretchy Man, and Sylvester Stallone (I may have stolen that last one from somewhere). It was basically all I did throughout elementary and middle school, and it definitely got me in trouble a few times when I was caught drawing in school when I should have been paying attention.

So, if you've got a kid like that who needs a creative outlet for their drawing, this is a pretty cool thing to check out - Zootown Arts Community Center has an Intro To Drawing Camp for kids ages 6 through 12. It's a six-week after-school course which meets every Wednesday from 4 PM to 6 PM.

Here's how they describe it on their website:

This is perfect for any kiddo who would like to become a better drawer. Exploring both experimental and traditional drawing methods, students will use charcoal, graphite, and pastels to learn how to see their world in new ways.

Sounds pretty good, right? I sort of wish I had attended something like this, maybe I could draw something that wasn't just a ripoff of the characters from The Fairly Oddparents. It's $125 to register if you'd like to sign your kid up. Think they'd be interested in something like this?
