The "Myth"tery of Storyboarding
Storyboarding Greek mythology–Androcles and the Lion.
Objective: Students will be able to define what storyboarding is in a historical and modern sense (i.e. cave paintings at Lascaux, Egyptian hieroglyphics, Chinese pictographs, comic books and filmmaking). Students will understand sequencing (i.e. middle, beginning, end) within a story and will be able to determine the central theme or message and how it is conveyed through main events and details. Students will understand a character's motivation and point of view and explain how their actions contribute to the sequence of events. Students will understand how to partition into parts with equal areas and will understand fraction equivalence (i.e. the area of each part is a unit fraction of the whole). Students will draw figures, objects and scenery using the elements of art with an emphasis on line, color, shape/form and space.
Students will need to provide 8.5×11 printer paper, pencil, and either markers, crayons, or colored pencils.
Appropriate for ages: Grade 3

Without a doubt, the ability of the teaching artist to engage and utilize the strengths of each students were remarkable. Taking students, many of whom have never enrolled in an art class, and engaging them on this level is impressive to say the least. I’d definitely recommend this program and experience to others.
