Hi, I'm Mary Gallagher Damiani!

Mary Gallagher Damiani is an children’s book author, illustrator and cartoonist in Los Angeles who teaches a high-energy, fun and silly cartooning workshop for children called Kid-Tooning. This past year, Mary was funded by The Burbank Arts For All Foundation to teach on-going cartooning lessons at Edison Elementary school in Burbank.  She ended the school year with a gallery of some of the completed cartoons that kids ages 4-12 did during the year.

 


CASE STUDY

 

In May, Mary held a a very successful Kid-Tooning workshop at Sandpoint Country Club in Seattle, Washington.  

Mary is returning in the fall of 2017 to do the workshop again.  Parents signed up ahead of time and children were dropped off in the activities room for a fun high energy 2 hours. Activiites include "Dance & Draw", improvised drawing games, basis elements of cartooning, story-telling elements and tips, and how to create your own character to name a few. Kids come away from the workshop with a book of their own cartoons, and and get to select one of Mary's children's books to take home.

I cannot thank you enough for your effort on Saturday- I have never seen the kiddos entertained quite like that.
