I have a large number of high school art students that continually ask =
me when we are going to work on cartooning. It seems that since sixth =
grade (approximately) they have had this "talent" at drawing characters =
(some copied, some original). I find it difficult to get them to draw =
from observation at times because they want everything to look =
"cartoonish." Well, I am looking for any project ideas that might =
allow a student to select cartooning/sequential art, etc. for their =
subject while other students may have an alternate solution (like =
realistic drawing, etc.). Not every one of my students is interested in =
this, so I'm not sure that I want to pursue a whole unit on it. Most of =
the students have done caricatures before and simple cartoon characters. =
Are there any other ideas that I could incorporate. Any help would be =
appreciated.
