Class Experience

Students will have a first-hand experience learning, drawing, and designing their manga character head "self-portrait." They'll learn the process of sketching "underdrawings," knowing appropriate facial proportions for eyes, nose, mouth, and hair, to later on the inking and marker-coloring techniques.
I have over 15 years of experience teaching manga and visual communication as a sought-after local art teacher. I love working with kids and youths, as they also enjoy the dynamic, fun, and "hands-on" type of teaching that I constantly model and demonstrate. 

Because of my unique educational background & professional experiences, I bring to my students an adventure filled with humor, diligent work, real-world-based insights, and life experiences together. 

But more importantly - I care deeply about my students, and I want the best for them. I strive to work with students of different needs, expertise, and challenges.
No homework! Students will be encouraged, but not required, to make a page(s) of sketches during the week in a sketchbook. Topics may include but are not limited to: manga faces, line, circle, and spline "dynamic sketching" drills and exercises.

If you have some pencils, erasers, white papers, a few black-inked fine-liner pens, Crayola markers, and a ruler, that's all the "bare minimum" you'll need!

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Hard work, growth in craftsmanship, and active participation are far more important than a perfect drawing in my classes. When students give their personal best, they have "arrived." They have "achieved" greatness.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I let my students freely explore character and concept designs for ninja, samurai, warrior-hood, police, or military-related character roles or prop designs. To help foster a safe atmosphere, no explicit images or themes of excessive blood, gore, or death will be allowed.
