Do you like comics?  Superheroes?  What if I told you DC is releasing activities each weekday for kids to do (and maybe for adults who are interested too)?  As we mentioned a few weeks ago, DC announced their exciting kids camp, and business is booming for all superheroes involved! The @DCComicsKids Twitter account is posting a large variety of activities on their page to appeal to everyone who wants to do them or is currently engaged in them.  So far everything from how superhero universe characters are drawn, to playlists, arts and crafts, script writing, puzzles, or science experiments.

 

 

The centerpiece of this project is the DC Comics Kid’s Camp, which has an interactive video series hosted by DCComicsKids graphic novel writers and artists!  Their videos go up every weekday at 1PM EST or 10AM PST.  Each video teaches young viewers skills that they may have as writers and artists, and the hosts go through their activities step by step.

Each video has been under ten minutes and each host pauses from time to time to make sure any children watching can keep up with the activity.  They make some jokes and each host has their own personality that is engaging in their own way.  The videos were amusing and informative and I think that both kids and their parents will love them, especially if you all love superhero-related stuff.

Some of the creators left their footage unedited to show that they too make mistakes, but even more important, how to fix them.  This demonstrates that learning a new skill is a process that takes time, and even if you are experienced in something that doesn’t mean you won’t make any mistakes.  It’s a nice lesson that is apparent in all of these videos.  What’s also cool is that various artists use different ways to draw their characters in their videos.  Some use a pen or pencil and paper, while others use an iPad.  It goes a long way to show the variance among artists and that there’s no one way to create art.

 

 

Here are some tweets from @DCComicsKids that show the kinds of activities they are posting every weekday.  If you want to check out more, head to their twitter page linked above.
