Learn to Draw Super Heros

Learn How to Draw Super Heros at the JHMEver wanted to learn the nitty-gritty of drawing super heroes? The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is offering two art classes on August 4th to learn to draw both comic and anime-styled super heroes. The 2:00 class is for children in grades 1 to 6; the 7:00 P.M. class is for youth in grades 7 to 12. (Adults may also take the 7:00 class.)

He has been seriously drawing for twelve years and has sold some of his original works at the Muskingum University art sale where he was a student.

Cost of the class is $6 for children and $8 for youth/adults. Paid reservations must be made by July 31st. For more information contact the museum at 740-622-8710 or stop in any day from noon to 5:00 P.M. The museum is located at 300 N. Whitewoman Street in Roscoe Village, Coshocton, OH 43812.
