I’ve Created a Monster! Less

Monsters are cool. Not to mention scary, funny, legendary, powerful, wide-ranging, intriguing…and fun to draw. In history, literature, mythology, and our own imaginations, monsters can embody our deepest hopes and fears, teaching us about who we are as people. In this comics residency, students will write and draw comics featuring monsters as characters. There will be a focus on metaphor as students design monsters to represent different emotions and experiences. This residency can be tailored to accompany any other social studies or language arts curriculum that focuses on monster myths and legends.

Additional Costs: Additional planning will be billed at $70 per hour and prep hours will be billed at $60. Additional supply costs depending on the scope of the project. Costs range from $1-$5 per student.

Minicomics Making Less

A minicomic is a self-published comic book, usually reproduced with a photocopier. In this residency or workshop, students will explore a variety of examples of minicomics. They will then write, draw, and publish their own—which they can then trade, keep, or circulate in the school’s library. Through the process of creating their own minicomics, students will learn all about how to plan a story by brainstorming, writing a rough draft, and revision. “Minicomics Making” can be structured to any subject—whether you want your students to write and draw an original story or create a comic that ties in to a particular unit.

Additional Costs: Additional planning will be billed at $70 per hour and prep hours will be billed at $60. Additional supply costs depending on the scope of the project. Costs range from $1-$5 per student.

Travel Costs: Federal Reimbursement Rate, negotiable.
