Let's Draw Comic Strips with Mr. Paul!
About This Video
Learn about drawing comic strips with Mr. Paul! This 10 minute video will introduce the basic principles of drawing a human face in a kid-friendly way. Viewers will learn comic art words like panel, beginning, middle, end, and punchline. We will start by designing our character(s) and thinking about their personality traits.
