Sample lesson plan:
“The Art of Cartooning”
Students will do an initial hour long beginning cartooning class then during the next 2-hour long sessions they will create a 4-panel comic strip based on a knock-knock joke. The second hour will be the penciling in of the panels. The third hour will be the inking of the strip.
Note: Sessions are limited to one classroom at a time.
The students will learn how to cartoon simple figures. They will then create their own characters to make a four-panel comic strip. They will learn sequencing of a joke. They will learn to use pencil, pen, and eraser to do a finished comic strip.
Total time of Project: 3 hours. Each session is one hour long
