Read Manga Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet, and look closely at the facial expressions. What do you notice? What emotions was Sonia Leong trying to portray on each of the characters’ faces?

Art Activity: Watch each video listed below, and then look back the illustrations in Romeo and Juliet and try to recreate the characters in the likeness of another pupil. Encourage them to look closely at the contours of each others’ faces and emulate the facial expressions.

Once completed, the collection of manga faces would work well as a collage for the classroom.
