CARTOON WORLD: Cartooning is on offer at next year’s Camp Creative.

IN the midst of all the other impending festivities, for those who want to plan ahead Camp Creative has released its Bellingen program for January 9-13, 2012.

Among the wide range of activities, popular cartoonist Jules Faber returns offering his cartooning course, covering editorial cartoons, comic strips, scripting and caricature. Jules brings with him years of experience including TV animation and newspaper cartooning. The course is suitable for anyone over the age of 10.

Another highlight is the inclusion of talented hip hop and break dancer Chad Homan.

Chad was one of the top finalists in ‘Australia’s Got Talent’, described as a ‘stand out’ contestant for his abstract thinking and original moves. Having recently completed a professional development course with the Australian Dance Performance Institute, he’s now ready to share his latest urban moves with both beginners and experienced dancers. Again, the courses are suitable for all ages.
