What you'll do

Do you think you can’t draw, or are frustrated and think this has to be easier? You’ve come to the right place.
All you need is a sense of humor, some paper, pencils, and erasers.
At the end of our two hour class, I look forward to hearing you say “I CAN draw and this is FUN!”
I’m Gene Hamm and in my How to Draw Caricatures class, we will make drawing simple as we utilize tips and tricks, I acquired from years of experience working in Hollywood animation studios.
These are tips and tricks they don’t teach you in art school.
I have experienced teaching a wide range of ages and abilities, from an 8 year old in China to an 80 year old in England. And for example, in 2018 a class of my special needs adults won a film festival in New York with their collection of animated shorts.
This How to Caricature class starts with me drawing a caricature of you. Then you draw along with me, as we move on to drawing a cartoon character from every angle utilizing simple yet professional tips and tricks.
My schedule makes the class available for any time zone in the world.
 At no extra charge I customize each class to accommodate one on one private lessons, birthday parties, corporate team building or any occasion. This also makes a much appreciated gift for the aspiring or experienced artist in your life.
I encourage you to look over my many five star reviews and comments on Airbnb.

Gene provides a wonderful low pressure setting to learn about caricature/cartoon drawing. Zero drawing skills are needed to fully enjoy this experience. We both enjoyed hearing Gene's experience as a professional cartoon artist with the legendary Hanna-Barbara studio. Gene is the real deal and is fun for the whole family!

This is a great way to learn the basics of drawing. Gene was so engaging and easy to understand, while moving at a pace to keep us interested. My niece and I both learned so much. Highly recommend!

The caricatures are really a lead-in to a class on cartoon art in general. We learned to draw cartoon faces in a variety of angles and expressions, drew an "all-purpose critter" cartoon animal, and Gene talked a lot about working for Hanna-Barbera as an animator. The instructions are very simple - you're mainly drawing lines and ovals and you don't have to be super precise for any of it - so it's fun even if you're a complete beginner at art.

I feel a great honor to learn a class from Mr.Gene.This is my first time to have a connection with the Hollywood! The session is very interesting and informative. Mr. Gene is so humorous and professional. I really enjoyed the lesson! It also reminded me many classic cartoons characters which I found of. I recommend it to everyone!

I ordered this experience as a Christmas present for my Mom and Dad. They absolutely loved it! Gene engaged my parents the entire time, told stories, and most Importantly reminded them why they love art and drawing. They have talked about the experience everyday since and learned lessons they will take with them.
