For classroom, special education and art teachers of grades 3–6
Today's classrooms include an ever-growing number of students with disabilities. The popular art form of cartooning provides an exciting tool to reach all students and to build their expressive and cognitive capacities while unlocking their story-making potential. By combining simple lines, shapes, and patterns, participants learn how to teach students to draw their own super heroes and super villains, and to add story elements to help them create their own Super Powered Stories. This hands-on workshop explores multiple options and entry points for students with learning, cognitive, and emotional disabilities. No previous drawing experience required!
