Strong Ave. Studios Visiting Artists Program

Strong Ave. Studios Visiting Artists Program is designed to increase and highlight what we do in the studio and how early education plays a huge part in an artist and student's career.

For students in kindergarten through 8th grade, we emphasize how math, spelling, language and history and other subjects play a part in our comic drawing and picture book production.

We also emphasize how creativity, ideas and teamwork make a good idea into a great project. We provides a wide range of drawing and examples of sketches, pencil drawings, ink drawings and completed project work.

Free Amigoman Stuff at Every Visit
With every visit, we will provide FREE Amigoman Stuff, like coloring pages, activity pages, mock comic pages, book marks, postcards, stickers and much more!

Creator of AMIGOMAN™ Classroom Visits
Creator of AMIGOMAN™, Anthony "AO" Oropeza loves chatting to students about what he does as a writer, artist and character creator! He also loves talking to students about how important the subjects that are taught in school are very important in comic book drawing, writing and creating.

Schools can organize this as they see fit, but the most successful classroom visits consist of smaller groups.

It gives the students a feeling of having really met Anthony. Students may also be more prone to ask their question in front of their own class rather than an auditorium full of strangers. This is an informative, educational and loose program.

Cost for Visits
Although AO would love to give all class room, school and library visits for free, there is a small fee to help cover costs, such as fuel, travel time, materials and the cost of printing of books we donate to the homeless and underprivileged students throughout the year. AO can visit one classroom or move from classroom to classroom for a 45-60 minute period to speak and answer as many questions the students may have for him.
For visit and fee information e-mail us at contactus<@>

Discounted Books with Visit
With each visit (min. 1 hr.) Strong Ave. Studios will give a 25% discount on all books (color & B/W covers) for a minimum of 25 books ordered before the visit.
For visit and fee information e-mail us at contactus<@>

Schools are also give a discount of books if they order before the visit and autographs can be placed on each issue.

Schools must provide a guide for Anthony.

Working with Teachers
We are more than happy to incorporate what the class is learning in their subjects per a teachers request. For example, if a teacher would like us to explain how fractions or history plays a part in our production of a comic book, no problem! We can do that. We want all students at every age to know that school is very important now and into college for a successful art career!

Helping Those Less Fortunate - Give A Can Good
Strong Ave. Studios feels helping those less fortunate should be on the top of our list, so periodically before our visit/appearance, we may ask the event coordinator to ask each attendee to donate one (1) can good. The donations will then be donated to a local food kitchen and/or homeless shelter. This is totally optional for each attendee.
