Manga Art Display!

Manga Art: we are having a Manga Art display in the library. During this meeting, I am just going to set out all my "How to Draw Manga" books with pencils, pens, and crayons and have the participants draw a few pictures for our display. To give the program a little bit of pizzazz, I had a volunteer cut 8 and 1/2 inch by 11 inch cardstock into 8 1/2 inch squares. I'm hoping that having paper that is a little more substantial and of a different size than they are used to might make them feel that their drawings are more "special." We'll see.

The participants will also get to use any manga in our collection for their models for drawing...I am just going to discourage tracing.

When I'm doing programs like this where the finished project stays in the library I like to have them start by putting their name and phone number on the back so I can easily return their items to them after we are done displaying them. I do this at the beginning so I don't forget. :)
