Our FIRST After-School Graphic Adventure Club has been completed!

…It took place over 8 weeks at Otter Valley Union Middle School in Burlington, Vermont with teacher Kim Hewitt.  (You can read more about this program’s backstory and my visit to them a couple months ago HERE.)  The kids really enjoyed it, and so did us grown-ups! Each week students read a chapter from the book, followed by discussion and a hands-on activity.

For example, they drew a mini-comic and played different drawing games…

…they made collages and drew in their sketchbooks.

For the final session of the after-school club, I Skyped with the kids so they could ask me questions and show me drawings they had made.

And I even got some drawings in the mail, which I love! These were fanciful creatures they invented.

It looks like we’ll hold this program again next year, so it’ll be a nice opportunity to refine the program further in the same location with the same teacher. Thanks for helping us make this happen, Artners Kim and Larken!
