Manga Drawing and Animation for Kids


Kidz Tips
  • Learn about Japanese culture & arts
  • Flexible drop-in classes
  • Convenient Chelsea location

If your child is familiar with Mario, Hello Kitty, Pikachu, and Rilakkuma, then he/she is ready for this class!

In this class, we will explore Japanese contemporary drawing styles to create Japanese anime characters of our own vision and design. Students will also learn how to make manga (Japanese-style comic) and basic animation techniques. 

Starting with basic drawing techniques, children will learn about and experience various mixed media (like crayon scratch, origami and magazine collage, making textures with acrylic color, using Japanese painting paper and so on), watch Japanese animation, and create their own characters.

Our class is not just a fan art drawing class, but also a place where the potential of young vivid imaginations can be expanded through anime characters. Once students make their own characters, they will have the opportunity to “play” with them! A character drawn on paper can be converted to a digital media file to be animated.

Age: 5 to 15+ years
Duration: 1 hour
