Comic strip hero


You need:
  1. picture of a comic hero on A6 size
  2. drawing paper A3 size
  3. ruler
  4. pencil
  5. markers or colour pencils
  6. scissors and glue
  7. coloured paper for background

Ask kids to bring a picture of their favorite comic strip hero. Bring it back or enlarge it to A6 size on a copier. Create a 1 cm on the picture using a ruler and a pencil. Number each square starting across the top from the left corner.

Draw a 2 cm grid on the large drawing sheet. Number in the same fashion all the squares. Begin drawing the line created by the picture in each square. Sometimes it helps to go over the outline of the head with a pencil so you can see the line clearly. As you do this the head will begin to show up as an exact copy of the picture. Finish the drawing this way. Use colour pencils or markers to colour it. Outline everything with a black marker.

All works are made by children of 10-11 years old
