Charles M. Schulz Museum

snoopy and astronaut academy

Raina Telgemeier and I will be touring Northern California and our first stop is at the Charles M. Schulz Museum, in Santa Rosa, where we’ll both be Cartoonists-in-Residence! If you can make it up to the North Bay, this should be so much fun.

As a life long Peanuts fan, I can’t tell you how excited I am about this! Raina and I will definitely be eating at the Warm Puppy Cafe and hopefully do some ice skating at Snoopy’s Home Ice!

Master Class for Young Adults

Join Raina Telgemeier, creator of Smile, and Dave Roman, creator of Astronaut Academy, to explore the art of making comics and writing stories. Participants will learn about thumbnails, layouts, balloon placement, panel variation, and the mechanics of sequential art, and will have a chance to create their own 4–8 page short comic. Recommended for aspiring cartoonists ages 10 and up. Cost: $35 for members; $40 for non-members.
Advance reservations required: (707) 284-1263.
