Rivertown Homeschoolers Hub
Art + Story; Comic Making for ages 10-18
Taught by Deb Lucke
Session dates: Wednesdays from 2pm - 3pm, September 14 - December 14
This class is meant to encourage creativity as well as understand of narrative. Each student will make their own comic using a method Deb has developed that allows kids to learn how to create a story in fun way. They will each come up with a small problem that they will draw on the first panel of a small accordion-folded book, receiving individual and group support to turn that problem into a bigger problem to which their character must respond and then an even bigger problem until a climax occurs. Ideas will be tossed around about how to end the story. Or how to have a surprise ending. Panels of book can be added or deleted to make the story stronger encouraging kids to think about what they need to show for the viewer to understand the story. Drawing skills are appreciated, but not needed.
Each week we will use comics to tell stories. Some classes will be devoted to turning a traditional story into a comic at the same time figuring out and learning the narrative structure. We will also use a non-fiction event to make a comic. We will make a comic based on real life. We will make a comic based on history. We might even make a comic based on math!
