What you'll learn in this kids drawing class:

If you are familiar with Mario, Hello Kitty, Pikachu, and Rilakkuma, then you can easily understand kawaii characters. In this class in New York City, 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.

Curriculum
  1. Learn basic drawing techniques
  2. Create your own original characters
  3. Practice drawing expressions and movement
  4. Layout
  5. Creating story lines
  6. Bring it all together to create your own
  7. Manga story
Why Manga
Japanese Manga is the synthesis of art and story. Unlike regular drawing classes, Manga classes can help young children develop strong writing and drawing skills at the same time.

This class is a place where young imaginations can be expanded through anime characters. Legend and myth strongly
influence Manga. Animals, elves, winged humans, robots, rocks and spirits all make appearances in Manga. RESOBOX Manga
Drawing Classes For Kids will teach your children how to harness their creativity.

Question from Anonymous
Can these classes be individual experiences or even two or three classes some weeks apart or are they to be taken as a series? Does the instructor build on fundamentals over a number of sessions, so taking one or a scattered few does not make sense?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! This is an individual experience since some kids are taking this class almost weekly and some are taking for the first time. Their instructor keeps track of each student's progress so he/she can build on fundamentals.
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Many students are taking one or a scattered few sessions to try out, and they can gain the basic ideas. But of course, if their goals are to create their own Manga comic books. The school recommends taking this class as often as possible at least for half a year.
