Comics Workshop: Family Comics

This next Family Comics Workshop followed up on our February session at the  Currier Art Center.  A new group of families created their own original comics stories, blending autobiography, imagination, exaggeration, and outright fun into four complete new mini-comics.

 First, we planned our projects:

Then we did a Panel Scramble to hone our sequencing skills:

The rest of the day, we worked on our projects and learned how to self-publish our mini-comics:
