The genre of Japanese pop culture that is known as manga (pronounced man-gah) and anime has become increasingly popular over the past few decades. These comics and animated shows have an undeniable appeal for kids of all ages. Having so many popular characters out there makes one wonder if certain creative minds who are into these things would think of creating characters of their own.
As part of our After-school Creative-ities, Manga Drawing with Copics will provide kids with a great start to drawing their own characters in this well-known style. In a series of sessions, each young artist will learn how to draw the very basics: eyes, hair, faces, and bodies in a series of sessions. They will also learn how to color with Copic markers, a brand of markers used by all sorts of creative professionals. Even kids who already have some experience with drawing can benefit from the lessons in the intermediate and advanced levels.
