Kids' Comic Art Classes in NJ

There's a flyer at Comic Fusion which caught my attention. I think this is such a great idea to get kids started in drawing:

COMIC BOOK COLLEGE

Students learn to draw their favorite comic and cartoon characters and create their own characters with many of the techniques used by the pros. Creating facial expressions and other storytelling techniques are also included in this fun class. Students work with pencil and ink.
