Students will create a storyboard and develop a black and white or color comic book based on an original character in an incredible situation. They will learn how to tell fantastic stories with pictures, while learning about form, shading, perspective, and proportion. Each student will produce a completed comic book in this class.
Students entering grades 1 through 5 in fall 2019 are invited to register for this class.
Students provide their own peanut free lunch for full day and snacks for half-day programs. Families and friends are welcome to come 15 minutes before the end of class on Friday to enjoy an exhibition of student work in the Education Gallery and classrooms.
Need a full day program? Students may combine the morning Patterns and Designs class with the afternoon creating Comic Books class, and Lunch Option 3.
