MANCHESTER — If a picture is truly worth “a thousand words,” the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications has two offerings this summer to help folks get their money’s worth from illustrations, whether via cartoon or camera.

According to David Tirrell-Wysocki, Executive Director of the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications, photography is a good way for non-profits and small businesses to learn how to use good photos to enhance their websites and tell their stories, while ‘Cartooning for Kids’ — a half-day workshop — is good way for kids to spend a Saturday morning in August, learning skills to help express themselves through drawing.

“Photography for Public Relations” will be presented at the Loeb School, at 749 East Industrial Park Drive in Manchester, on July 6, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Award-winning photographer Geoff Forester will provide suggestions on how to take photos that will help tell your business or non-profit’s story in print or on the web. The workshop includes camera basics, taking good photos and selecting photos that best tell your story. Students will need a digital camera.

A $50 registration fee includes lunch.

“Cartooning for Kids” will be offered at the school Aug. 4 from 9 a.m. to noon.

The workshop is designed for students aged 15 and younger. Artist, illustrator, cartoonist and art instructor Ron Plante will offer tips and hands-on learning skills for creating cartoons or illustrations.

The registration fee for this workshop is $30. Students will be required to bring some drawing supplies, including a sketchpad, pencils, a marker and eraser.
