I love classrooms and I am always looking for opportunities to encourage drawing and storytelling. Here are some pictures by educator, Michael Gianfrancesco from a recent visit to his Graphic Novel Course at North Providence High School.
Things to think about when drawing comics at school:
-Acknowledge the time restraints because everyone works at a different pace and it is important to note when we are feeling rushed.
-Setting up a safe creative space where all participants feel comfortable drawing and writing.
-Taking a leap into the unknown and embracing the awkwardness of your first try at something.
-Observing this experience for future reference.
