I have another Draw Cartoons! camp this week at ACAD. Lots of creative kids drawing stuff. Below is one of the surrealist games we played on the first day.

I had each of the kids draw the first box in a three panel comic. They were then mixed up randomly and they had to build on the characters and plot of the previous square until there were three finished boxes. A fourth kid read the comic and gave it an appropriate title. Here is what my youth ages 9 - 12 created.
I created a bunch of fun drawing activities for the kids cartooning classes the first being a follow along comic creation, starting with a random establishing shot, wide, medium, cowboy or over the shoulder, close up and then go back and add narration, thought and speech bubbles and allow the story to develop organically.
