Girl Scouts Comics workshop…

Last night capped off a two day comic project with a local Girl Scouts troop. This is actually the second workshop I have conducted with this troop.

First was a short conversation about comics…we learned about artists like Alison Bechdel and Lynda Barry, the comic book burnings and bans in America in the 1950’s and the Comics Code Authority and international comics like Persepolis…

The girls then made their own 4 panel comics…we focused on autobiographical stories, trying to challenge the girls to find interesting and different ways of talking about themselves…

The girls ended up making these great comics about things like how to wear Birkenstocks year round or the struggles of getting out of bed in the morning…
