Drawing cartoons is a great way to encourage young writers and illustrators.
Study the styles of distinguished cartoonists. Examine the relationships among illustration style, character development, and story line.
Imagine a story about a dreamer, inventor, or explorer. Where might they go? What might they do? Imagine a scary, silly, or serious situation. List the scenes to help plan how many cartoon frames are needed to tell the story.
With a ruler and Crayola® Colored Pencils, measure and draw a cardboard or oak tag cartoon frame template. Make a square or rectangle shape in a cartoon-like size. Cut out the center of the frame with Crayola Scissors.
On construction paper, trace around the template as many times as needed with colored pencils. If desired, leave space between frames to draw dialogue lines.
Sketch the story characters and background with light lines. Write dialogue and draw balloons around the words.
Complete the figures and background with Crayola Fine Tip and Washable Markers. Outline words and dialogue balloons.
