Sketch Your Story

Sketch Your Story was a community outreach workshop designed to supplement author Neil Gaiman's visit to campus. The workshop was a collaborative effort between Creative Campus, The College of Education and Emmanuel Baptist Church. The workshop took place in multiple installments at the Wood Village mobile home community.  The focus of the workshop was to instruct a group of students from the community, ranging from fourth to eighth grade, in creating a graphic novel.  The students were encouraged to think creatively about the process of creating a story and translating it into a sequential art format.  The stories ranged in themes, from meaningful experiences in the student's life to fantastical accounts of superhero exploits.  In creating the graphic novel the students realized that the narrative of a story could be told through various mediums.
