Just dropping in between school programs for a quick update!  Fall has been busy with school appearances; for the last 2 weeks I’ve been working with 4th grade students in 2 Charlotte schools .  My “Kids Make Comics!” residency program kicked off 2 weeks ago at Walter G. Byers Elementary (pictured), followed by a week at Bruns Academy.  Great staff, great students, great comics!  This week; off to W. Columbia, SC and a school I’ve visited every year for about 5 years now, Saluda River Academy for the Arts!  The school holds a special week of arts programming each year,and hosts an artist  from visual arts, music, dance and theater disciplines.  It is very well organized and a thrill to be a part of!  I work in Connie Boleman’s art room all week with 4th grade students- Ms. Boleman has been a fantastic host each year I’ve visited- in fact all of the arts teachers are so much fun to be around; lunch time with this group should be a comic of its own!
