The Outside Circle: The Power of the Graphic Novel

Focusing on the graphic novel, The Outside Circle, students will look at the origin of story and character building within the graphic novel genre. Through discussion and hands on art activities, they will uncover how to use illustration and language to portray deeper meaning in a story. Once students have discussed the book, they will move into the studio to learn the basics of creating their own story, characters and the beginnings of their own unique graphic novel. (Fine Arts, Language Arts)
