Graphic Novel Club 2016/17

 

What is a Graphic Novel? 

Well, the simplest definition really is..."cartoon drawings that tell a story and are published as a book".

 

When does it run and exactly what will students be doing? 

Club runs every Wednesday at lunchtime, from 1pm. Every so often the day may change and if so, a notice will be posted.

Using one of the headers below, students will illustrate a story or other piece of literature. There are a variety of illustration styles that students may pick from, or they can use their own special style (which is always preferred!). All of their final work will be scanned and digitally remastered and then compiled in to one large Graphic Novel. This book will be professionally published and will be available to buy.

This is a fantastic opportunity for those wishing to enter in to a creative industry, a great piece to add to a portfolio!
