ASSIGNMENT 4. BUILDING STORIES – Penguins

Although I didn’t end up choosing the penguin story, I did do a lot of preparatory work for the character and story development:

POSSIBLE STORY CHARACTERS & SETTINGS:

6. The Climax –

FILL IT UP FAST:

DESCRIPTION & DEPICTION:

STORY LAYOUT DEVELOPMENT/ STORYBOARD:

PHOTOGRAPHS:

We have been learning about ‘under the sea’/ ‘sea animals’ in class and the children made some penguin & fish paintings; as well as drawings. I prepared a lot of ‘sea animal’ activities for the children in class in order to ‘learn through play’. I was planning to incorporate some of these childrens’ art and activities in my illustrations.

DRAWINGS:

PAINTINGS:

CARDS:

CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES:

MARK-MAKING:

I was planning on using these crayon-coloured sheets to add colour to the furniture/ walls in the classroom illustrations.

REFLECTION:

Although I did not have time to complete both the fairy& penguin stories, I learnt a lot by doing all the exercises in preparation for the penguin story. Hopefully, I will have time to complete it at some point in the future.
