Comics in Your Classroom
with RICHARD JENKINS
This in-depth and hands-on professional development retreat will provide teachers with the opportunity to dive deep into the rich medium of comics & cartooning. Character design, lettering, sequencing, joke creation, story creation, inking, and panel layout are just some of the skills that teachers will learn. They will also learn the vocabulary of comics. Participants will design original outer space characters to be used in multiple humorous comic strips. Teachers will also design original super heroes and villains to be used in the creation of their own full-page adventure comics.
Paper, pencils, ink pens, color markers, and coloring pencils are the materials that teachers will be learning to use to make their comics; supplies are provided. Participants will also receive a free copy of the arts integration manual "Comics in Your Curriculum."
