Classical art is inspiring, but it isn't always popular with pupils. Indulge their interests while developing their drawing technique with a manga scheme of work from Jono Carney.
What is it?
A 12-lesson scheme of work that introduces the manga style, guiding pupils through the process of creating their own characters, including:
Ideas for introducing the history and style of manga.
A research lesson to help develop skills in finding information.
Six lessons on developing drawing techniques in the manga-ka style, focusing on each part of the body in detail.
More complex technique advice, helping pupils to provide a guide to their characters and create action poses for them.
Why not use this scheme of work as the starting point for a cross-medium project and study anime as well? Tynybanwen shares a PowerPoint resource introducing Japanese animated film, with a storyboard project for pupils to create their own.
