What you'll learn in this comic book drawing class:

This is a two hour intensive taught by an experienced Manga Instructor! Enjoy a super creative, collaborative atmosphere and learn new techniques and skills: Manga/ or Japanese comic book art comes in many different styles and genres, (so each student can explore which one suits their skill set). Styles include Chibi, Shoju, Shounen and more! 

Our class curriculum includes lectures on proportion, color, line, shading and perspective in a composition, as well as placement of the character on a page to create a dynamic narrative. 

Gain confidence in figurative, technical drawing, storyboarding and inking skills, color theory and the importance of composition to drive the mood of a narrative. Students create a Manga comic based on their own characters or pre-existing characters while expanding on their drawing skills.

Please note:
  • Experience level ranges from complete beginners who love to draw, to more advanced students working in the Shōnen or Shōjo style to make their own comic books- all that’s required is lots of imagination and enthusiasm! 
  • All Art Supplies are included in your class fee: drawing pads for comic book layout, a wide assortment of manga markers for colorizing and micron pens for inking. 
  • All students may provide their own laptop or iPad to convert their drawings into digital form.

Refund Policy

COURSE CANCELLATION: Although course cancellation is quite rare at our studio, we reserve the right to cancel classes or change instructor assignments. We will make every effort to notify a student in advance of any cancelled class. If enrollment goals are not met, a course may be cancelled up to 48 hours before the first scheduled class. We will notify you to reschedule the class to another upcoming date.

On occasion, a course start-date will be pushed back if enrollment goals are not met. In this instance, you will receive a credit for the price of the class that did not take place.In the event of a total class cancellation due to unforeseen circumstances, and if a student is unable to switch into another class offering, a full refund will be granted. In the event of severe weather conditions, Creatively Wild Art Studio will follow the NYC public school closing, and make-up classes will be at the discretion of the Director.

NO SHOWS: CWAS is not responsible for issuing refunds for any missed classes. If you don't show up for any in-studio scheduled class that you are enrolled in, you are marked as a no show and are not entitled to any credit or rescheduling. If you're looking for a refund or class credit for a full class course PKG, you will need to back out of the class at least 1 full week before it starts. We would need to receive your notification via email (not telephone). We know this seems very strict, but since our spots are limited and teachers are booked in advance it's hard to deal with last-minute bailings. We hope you understand we cannot run our programmed classes according to every student’s individual personal schedule.We offer individual class options for those with tricky schedules. If you cancel your session in time, we can either credit you for the remaining sessions (valid for 6 months from the date of your original enrollment) or refund you minus the admin fee of $75.

ONLINE CLASSES: We require you to register ahead of time for any online class via the Zoom invitation that will be sent to you after your register. If you register and do not join your scheduled online class you will not be credited for the class or have the option to reschedule. We are sorry for this strict and hard rule at this time but in order for us to cover our costs, as we book our teachers in advance and have them in place for the session. Our instructors are professional teaching instructors and we cannot cancel an instructor last minute.

If you register for an online session and notify us at least 48 hours in advance by email with your request to reschedule, we may be able to put you into another upcoming online class that has availability at our discretion. Please note it is not our responsibility to offer you any credit if you cannot attend a rescheduled session.

Reviewed by Lowell W. on 5/28/2019
I really liked it! I wished it was longer and I feel like I should have had more help and tips. It would have been good to be able to try some of the tips on a smaller sheet of paper to practice before doing them on the main drawing. I highly recommend this class for other kids! Even if you’re not into manga drawing, it’s still worth it. In all, I loved this class and will take it again.
