Bristol Cartoonist Teaches Children About Littering

Cartoonist Steve Brosnihan joined children in picking up litter in Bristol after rasing their environmental awareness.

On Sunday, March 18, Bristol's sponsored a C.O.O.L Bugs environmental awareness event at the church, featuing a local cartoonist.

Cartoonist Steve Brosnihan, famous for his "cartoonograms" and "Rhode Island... Can Be Puzzling" state maps, spent some time with local children to teach them about the environment and how to draw cartoons.

According to Rev. Daniel Randall, Brosnihan is a member of the First Congregational Church, and offered his time to help the children.

"He led the children in a program teaching them how to draw using only the letters of the alphabet," Randall said, noting that Brosnihan connected the cartoons with environmental awareness. "After that we all went around the block and picked up litter as C.O.O.L. (Caring Opponents of Litterbugs)."

According to his website, Brosnihan has been the Resident Cartoonist at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence since 1991 where he "draws at bedside with patients, teaching cartooning and otherwise drawing to provide amusement."

Steve, thanks for being such a great part of our community of faith and providing our children with such valuable (and fun!) lessons. It was a great day in so many ways. Thanks again, PD
