From Paper to Webtoons: Drawing Stories

From Paper to Webtoons: Drawing Stories

I will lead 9 classes on Saturday mornings starting at 10am. First day is June 27. Here is the information for the course I am working on. This will be on Zoom through the Chinese cultural center I work at. -------------------------------------- This is a small interactive dynamic class that teaches basic drawing skills as students work to craft their own visual stories. Along the way we will explore formats of publication from hand crafted books to online webtoons. Recommended for 2nd grade and up. Day 1: Heroes and Villains Finding your story can start with the characters you create. This session we will draw animals, people, and monsters. Day 2: Magic We continue learning to draw animals, people, and creatures along with magical elements like portals, and special effects like fire and explosions. Day 3: Far Off Places World building is an important part of storytelling. We will draw/design the background/environment. From mushroom houses to other planets. Day 4: World

:new: :bulletblue: Here is the link to the page: :spotlight-left: :spotlight-right: Every year, every semester my students surprise me with excellent drawings. Many of them are too young to have a social media account but many of them are ready to start sharing their work with the big scary world. Why share the drawings? When we post our art for the world to see, we share a little bit of ourselves. We share our energy, our passions, our fears, our demons. You are participating in the conversation that we call our collective cultures. Be proud of what you have all accomplished. Keep going!

The book goes into the fun and fantastical with words and imagery about a

I popped over to say thank you for favoriting my centaur at the bus stop, then I saw that you had dozens and dozens of awesome centaur pieces yourself and favorited a large number of them. Great stuff.
