In CinemaKidz Virtual, learn all about film shot composition, storyboarding, and visual storytelling by making your own comic book! Participants will improve their drawing skills through the staging and drafting of an original visual story concept they create. Teachers work with students to help them understand how to use the landscape of each panel and page to create a dynamic story with a delicate balance of artwork and language. Participants will dive into drawing techniques and create original characters, personalities, and a story for their own comic. Participants will have a chance to try out different drawing styles and work drawing by hand as well as drawing digitally to create their story. Kids will take a closer look at their favorite movies, and how the directors were able to tell the story through visuals using storyboards.
