Artists: Please send me your final draft, either by scanning your creation or taking a clear picture and sending it to me by email at rloza@buhlschools.org. Creations turned in after the deadline time will not be considered for the challenge. You are free to use your paper of choice and include any colors. You can create your storyboard boxes using whatever shape, you don't have to stick to the traditional rectangle shape. Feel free to experiment and let me know in which order the story goes. You may also include text but you are not required.

*You may use pen or sharpie to outline.

To All: Please make sure to keep all writing and art work school appropriate. We will be looking for those who followed the guidelines and turned in their work on time. Bonus points for those who foster their creativity with this challenge. For this month you will be working solo but you are free to ask for help with any questions you have. Again, if you have any questions please email me and I will be more than happy to get you on track. Examples for the story boards are within the images on this page. Can't wait to see how you challenge yourself this month!
