> Subject: Cartooning Ideas
> 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.
