Do you like to draw cartoons? Join us at the Long Island Museum and learn all about cartooning with a professional. When he was young, Mike Lynch hosted “drawing parties.” "My friends would come over and we would all draw together on big pieces of paper. I liked drawing so much that I decided to become a professional cartoonist. Now my cartoons appear in Mad Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and other places.” If you like to draw, join Mike’s drawing party this summer. See our ad for class times.
