Take the Lead! Mar. 10, 2021

Let your imagination come to life through comics! On Wednesday, March 10th, 2021 at 5:30 pm Berkshire Children’s Chorus members and their classmates are invited to join us for a 75-minute comics drawing workshop with published cartoonist Daryl Seitchik, part of our Take the Lead! series.

The workshop will cover character design, facial expressions, body expressions, and world-building–all the fundamentals needed to put your character into a one-page cartoon. Bring a sharp pencil and an eraser, some paper to draw on, and your imagination.

This event is free of charge and open to all middle and high school students in the Tri-State Berkshire Region.

Daryl Seitchik Daryl is a cartoonist and teacher currently living in Vermont. She received a B.A. in Art History and Visual Art from Barnard College in 2012, and an MFA in cartooning from the Center for Cartoon Studies in 2018.

Our mission

“I love being in The Berkshire Children’s Chorus because I love singing. It just brings me joy and I have these moments when I’m singing where everything feels exactly right.” – Miranda, grade 7.

During the pandemic we are not able to sing, but we have been hosting a series of online workshops called Take the Lead! Check in for our next event here.
