Manga Drawing Class-Summer School

The image above is actually from 3 years ago when I taught a cartooning class.  This year I am teaching a 'manga' which for those of you that may not know, is basically Japanese-style cartooning.  It's HUGE at my district, the kiddies are obsessed with it and over the years it has gained more and more popularity here in the U.S. 
Below was one of the first 'projects' we did. Manga 'pop-ups' Students drew a few practice sketches, choose their favorite one, and re-drew it large on either cardboard or foam-core.  I then cut it out with an X-acto knife and they were painted.  Viola! Manga in 3D
