This is a two hour intensive taught by an experienced Manga Instructor! Enjoy a super creative, collaborative atmosphere and learn new techniques and skills: Manga/ or Japanese comic book art comes in many different styles and genres, (so each student can explore which one suits their skill set). Styles include Chibi, Shoju, Shounen and more!
Our class curriculum includes lectures on proportion, color, line, shading and perspective in a composition, as well as placement of the character on a page to create a dynamic narrative.
Gain confidence in figurative, technical drawing, storyboarding and inking skills, color theory and the importance of composition to drive the mood of a narrative. Students create a Manga comic based on their own characters or pre-existing characters while expanding on their drawing skills.
*Experience level ranges from complete beginners who love to draw, to more advanced students working in the Shōnen or Shōjo style to make their own comic books- all that’s required is lots of imagination and enthusiasm!
* All Art Supplies are included in your class fee: drawing pads for comic book layout, a wide assortment of manga markers for colorizing and micron pens for inking.
*Please note all students may provide their own laptop or iPad to convert their drawings into digital form.
Please note last minute drop ins are available in all our classes (depending on availability)
