We had some fun using the ComicBook! app in art class. Students were given the assignment to create a short comic that would teach the younger students some of our clean-up procedures in art. We started by using a blank template to storyboard our ideas. Next, students drew pictures, made props, or figured out how they were going to photograph their story. Some students chose to work in groups which was a little easier for them to set up and take the pictures. The next class we brought the ipads in and turned our storyboards into comics. ComicBook! is a great app. It does cost $1.99 but I think it is worth it. I tried looking for free comic apps but they just weren't that great. This app has fun photo effects, speech bubbles, stickers and lots of layouts. They kids had a blast. Here are a few of the finished comics that didn't have any photos of kids in them.
Here are examples of our story boards:
