Manga & Comic Book Creations REGISTER BELOW

New this year! A class designed for the older homeschooler, middle, and high schoolers!

During this series, students will learn how to create their own characters using manga and comic influences. The initial classes will include; learning proportions, expressions, character design, story building, and comic making. During the first four classes students will work on designing a character completely from the ground up. Students will study character traits, a character background, clothing designs, and more. The characters they develop will offer an understanding of proportions, expressions, and personality.

The next four classes will revolve around creating a 4-panel comic with the character they designed earlier in the session. Using the tools of comic artists, students will gain an understanding of the process, the creativity, and intensity that comic-making offers. Our goal is to create a diverse and fun learning environment for all of our young artists.
