The class has been working very hard on a long term drawing/cartooning project with Susan Abrill-Russek, a professional cartoonist. I was able to hire her by personally applying for a grant rom ArtStarts.
The project was called “Drawing History Into Today”. Students worked in teams to research, storyboard, sketch, ink and shade vignettes from early Canadian history.
As a result of all of this work we’ve made a book with over 50 pages of student made cartoons! It will soon be printed and each student will receive one free copy of this book. If families would like more than one copy, they will only be charged for the cost of printing ($6.00 ea.).
Stay tuned for more info soon!
