Anime and Manga is a style of illustration and animation that originated in Japan. Today the style is widely used globally in many spheres of art including: Illustration, Animation, Graphic Design, Sculpture, Comics, and Fine Arts.

The class will teach drawing techniques such as: Perspective, Form, Gesture, Anatomy, Shape Language, Costume Design, Expressions, Panel Design and Storytelling, Composition.

All the students need is just a few materials to get started.
Students will complete a large project each session of 5-6 classes, along the way building skills, doing smaller studies, and observing demos from Zach. Plenty of one on one instruction is given in this class, as well as talking amongst classmates giving help and encouragement. Come join a group of like-minded teen artists and anime lovers!
