Charles Schultz, circa 1970
IntroductionYour team is about to set out on an exploration into the history and influences of one of the most popular forms of art ever: The Comic Strip.
What is it that makes a comic strip appealing? Why do some cartoons fade out after a short time, while other endure past the life of the author?
Each team will research a comic character or comic artist. They will discover what influences and style went into the character or artist's work, and will create a presentation on what they find.
The final product will be presented to the class as a team effort, so do your best!
