How lucky we were on Friday February 25 at Strathcona Library to welcome graphic novelists Aaron Renier and Jason Shiga who ran an amazing, hands on workshop with Mr. Brown’s grade 6/7 class.
Using audience ideas, kind of like a comic improv, Aaron showed us how to use different elements of graphic novels while he drew a four panel story about Stick, Rock and Justin Beiber.
Jason adds an alternate ending!
Jason shows us how to make a basic interactive comic, testing our visual spatial intelligence.
The kids try out their ideas while Yukiko figures out how to explain the interactive comic design as origami (valleys and mountains).
A big thank you to Aaron, Jason, Yukiko, and all the other VPL and VSB staff who helped pull this inspiring event together!
