SMASH writer Chris A. Bolton got to meet and chat with the amazing 5th graders at Sweetbriar Elementary School in Troutdale, OR.
These enthusiastic kids are studying graphic novels and are about to make their own, so Chris talked about their creative process and showed them a few things from How to Make Comics - the Smash Way.
(And yes, Chris mentioned that when he was a kid, they didn't study comics in school -- they tried to hide them from the teachers!)
Big thanks to Lynn Reaney and all the staff and faculty at Sweetbriar for being awesome. And HUGE thanks to the students for their super-smart questions and great ideas! We can't wait to see how their comics come out.
