Students will work to complete a comic strip or short book, fully inked, that will tell a quick and complete story. Students can create their own characters or use preexisting ones. Each student will be coached individually and the teacher will introduce comic graphic novels and arts books for reference. By the end, students will have a finished comic strip or short book that they put a ton of effort into and that they can be proud of. Includes $10 materials fee.
