A child shows early signs of creativity by artfully spilling ice cream and denying that a pacifier is a pacifier. Harness the power of artistic underpinnings with today’s Groupon for youth cartooning lessons at Sirron Norris Studio on Valencia Street. Choose between the following options:

  • For $65, you get five Introduction to Cartooning classes ($20 each) with an included supply fee ($35; a $135 value).
  • For $75, you get a four-hour Introduction to Cartooning workshop with a poster and pizza (a $150 value).

The five studio classes unlock children's artistic gifts through the capable tutelage of Sirron Norris, a professional muralist whose work has been featured on Bob’s Burgers and on PBS. Introductory classes teach young artists ages 6–12 basic drawing techniques that breathe life into two-dimensional characters without the trouble of hiring Morgan Freeman to voice-act them. In five weekly sessions held on Mondays or Saturdays, graphite-wielders can develop and deploy their own original cartoon characters and bring their imaginations to life on the page. As part of this deal, the studio provides students with all the necessary art supplies, including art pencils, paper, and a menagerie of wild animals for realistic portraiture.

For speedier cartoon creators, the introduction to cartooning workshop condenses five lessons into one massive drawing venture. The four-hour session pits pencil-equipped hands against an onslaught of blank pages, ensuring that no surface is left cartoon-free. During the workshop students draw inspirational fuel from the included slices of pizza, and afterward they can pin one of three Sirron Norris posters to their bedroom wall to cover up the portrait of Sirron Norris they had painted there.
