Create & Draw Anthropomorphic Characters with Jannie Ho

Saturday, July 16 | 1:00-2:30 PM | Downtown Multipurpose Room | Grade 6-Adult

Learn the basic techniques for creating unique characters – from anthropomorphic animals to inanimate objects brought to life – with Jannie Ho, children’s illustrator and cartoonist. Drawing materials are provided.

To get a taste of the possibilities when using anthropomorphic characters read Jannie’s If You Lived Here which has toured the country as part of the 2011 Sketchbook Project. It provides a window into Ann Arbor through a newcomer’s eyes and shows that you can create wonderful stories using animals in place of human characters.



What a great opportunity. There are so many great teen activities this summer!

Jannie Ho is a great teacher and great artist. I love her style. Glad she's working with aadl to make summer reading so adorable this year.

Is preexisting ability required or assumed?

Always want to get better at drawing!!

My mom was an artist. Maybe I should take this class to get better at drawing.

You do not need to have experience with drawing to take part in this program. Just desire to learn.

No experience or ability with drawing required. Just a desire to learn.

Awesome. I love that so much of this is kind of low key; it makes it a lot of fun!

This looks really fun!


I wish my 4th & 5th graders were old enough to go; they'd enjoy this!

If you are a bit younger than the posted age but are super interested in learning some new drawing techniques, then you are welcome to participate.

Not sure what this is, but I'll check out the book.
