The Graphic Novel Project 2020

How do we tell a visual story? Why do we tell a story visually? 5th and 6th grade students used these questions as an entry point into the world of graphic novels. By exploring popular and classic graphic novels, as well as children’s books and animated films, students examined various techniques used to create engaging visual narratives. From this research young artists created their own graphic novels, illustrating the origins, journeys, struggles, and growth of their original characters.
