Fall Term: Teen Manga / Anime Class

September 29, 2022 to December 1, 2022

6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

This 10 week drawing course will focus on how to tell a story through character design, expression and environments. Students will learn basic anatomy along with proportions, facial expressions and gestures to help them convey the story they wish to tell. Each class will have students focusing on a specific subject with which they will put their own characters into to help them engage with the material. For example, one week we will focus on hands. But whose hands are they drawing? How can you show that this hand belongs to a certain character?

With manga becoming a booming industry worldwide, and the five largest titles having over 1.37 billion books in print, it’s no wonder people are so drawn to creating their own work.

This year we are asking students to bring their own pencil cases with general supplies: pencils/or pencil set, white eraser, scissors and ruler along with a sketchbook. Additional supplies will be noted in the outline if needed.
