This week I taught a free demo class for Private Picassos at Book Culture on the upper west side. We made mini “hot dog” books following a worksheet I printed out for each student. Then using our newly made mini books we made short stories experimenting with the idea of telling a story with no words. The boys in this class insisted on adding words. It was hard for them to image a comic book without words, so I let it slide. The results were fantastic.
