This class is taught using proper social distancing with masks and free standing HEPA/UV-C air cleaners in the classroom.
Learn the basics of cartooning and drawing manga (Japanese-style comics)! Students get started with drawing fundamentals and are introduced to sequential art techniques. Students create a short comic to develop understanding of character design, basic anatomy, posing, and page layout, learning what it takes to create a comic from rough pencil to final print!
