What are you doing this spring break? Create your own graphic novel!
Using your original story, teaching artist Dana Sullivan will lead you through the process of scripting, storyboarding, pacing, and laying out your graphic novel. You will examine Manga, comics, graphic novels, and picture books for examples of the many different ways to tell YOUR story using illustration and words. You’re the director, adding emotion, drama, and humor to your graphic masterpiece.
