Comic/Manga for Grades 3-6

f you find yourself doodling characters and comics on your off time, and if you like visual novels and animated series, this is the place for you! Join in on a cozy group-oriented setting with themed design challenges and an interactive environment. The class consists of a basic overview lecture of various topics - composition, color choice, panelling & storytelling, and anatomy practice - as well as additional one-on-one tips and critiques on the current works-in-progress.

Art teaching is an interactive process. We start a lesson with a short lecture and demonstration. Teachers provide advice, help, correct the digital image of a student's work, explain what works in particular cases and what does not, and why.​
