Charlie Brown

Charles Schultz, circa 1970


Your 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!
