I had the pleasure to teach a classroom of 4th Graders (my son’s class) on how comic books are created during the Spring of 2013. I wanted them to be involved and created an assignment where they had to draw, ink and color a comic book cover. I printed out about 30 cover samples covering the past 40 years of comics and included Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Spiderman and a few others. I covered the basics of design, composition, human form and then told them to pick their favorite hero of the group and recreate, or create a whole new cover. I gave them 2 weeks to turn in the assignment and then came back and did a critique of each of the covers. They all went above and beyond the call of duty and put the time in, and it really shows in some of the projects. I am doing the same type of project with a High School class in the next few weeks, I look forward to seeing what they do.
