Bob Englehart, the award-winning editorial cartoonist, will visit Amity Regional High School on October 5, 2016, to offer a workshop to Amity’s History, Journalism, and Art students. Mr. Englehart was the first full-time editorial cartoonist in the 251 year history of The Hartford Courant, and worked for that newspaper for 35 years.
Mr. Englehart maintains a web site (Bobenglehart.com) where he displays a collection of his cartoons, a blog, and his memoir “Trackrat: Memoir of a Fan”. He still draws 3 cartoons a week for the cartoon syndicate, Caglecartoons.com.
Mr. Englehart will discuss his creative process and share insights about writing gags, drawing cartoons and caricatures, and the perils of the daily newspaper
The event will be hosted by Amity librarians Robert Musco and Cara McConnell, and made possible by the Jamie Hulley Arts Fund. More information about the Fund’s mission and work can be found at: jamiehulleyartsfund.org.
