While Japanese manga share much in common with Western comics and graphic novels, it is a unique and ancient art form dating back to the 13th century!
In our short intro workshop, we will learn about the evolution of manga and explore the fundamentals of character design, story development, page layout, penciling, editing, and inking techniques through fun, challenging exercises designed to inspire creativity and ignite a desire to write and draw stories in modern and classic Japanese styles.
