Draw Together! utilising Lollipop Theater Network

The Patrick Star Show storyboard artist Amanda Texter-Donahue, a returning artist, sketched alongside children in six hospitals around the nation! The theme for this week was Spongebob and Patrick having fun at the beach, giving a clear nod to summer.


Wishful thinking

This past week, Nickelodeon helped make Felix’s desire come true! While Bran Vandergrift, Storyboard Artist on Spongebob Squarepants, sketched Felix’s request to be a client at the Krusty Krab helping Plankton steal the Krabby Patty formula, all of his favourite Bikini Bottom friends recorded a special message for him.

Draw Together! with Paramount Veterans Network and TAPS

NiCE organised a drawing session for T.A.P.S. family members in collaboration with the Paramount Veterans Network (www.taps.org). Alongside Jeff Sornig at Studio Learning + Engagement, Brandon Warren, Kamp Koral’s supervising director, and Emily Monjaraz, The Loud House’s prop designer, children enjoyed THE BEST DAY EVER singing, chatting, exhibiting their artistic talent, and drawing.
