This DIY comic is designed to help your students get creative and make their very own comic.

Page 1 starts with a 4-panel comic to set out key ingredients for making a comic: setting, story, characters, drawing tools, and inspiration. These ingredients come in many different flavours, it’s up to you how to use them. Pages 2 and 3 include activities for students to continue a story, change the setting, design characters, and draw those characters in different poses. Page 4 shows four ways to tell the same story, showing how you can use different panel structures. But all these examples are only a starting point: it’s up to your students to make their own best comic.
