‘Sesame Street’ animator Mo Willems holds online drawing classes during coronavirus lockdown

Emmy Award-winning writer and animator Mo Willems has launched drawing classes for kids and kids-at-heart stuck at home as cities around the world go on lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Willems’s new series, titled “LUNCH DOODLES with Mo Willems!”, was first released on the YouTube channel of The Kennedy Center on Monday, March 16. The children’s book author is the center’s education artist-in-residence.

Episodes are filmed in Willems’ studio in Massachusetts, USA. A new episode is posted daily on YouTube at 1 p.m. ET (1 a.m. PST).

Besides giving step-by-step demonstrations of how to draw a cartoon, the artist answers letters from young fans and gives a peek into his creative process. An online guide to the drawing is also posted on Willems’s page on the Kennedy Center website.

He says on the site, “You might be isolated, but you’re not alone. You are an art maker. Let’s make some together.”

His TV work includes “Sesame Street” cartoons, Nickelodeon’s “The Off-Beats,” Cartoon Network’s “Sheep in the Big City” and “Codename: Kids Next Door.”  /ra
