Class Experience

Students will learn to develop key core skillsets that's required to illustrate their own manga comic.
My unique education background & professional experiences (Art Center College of Design PROD 02, professional manga artist and concept artist in theme entertainment industry) helps me to bring to my students an "up-to-date" kind of experience - one that's infused with humor, diligent work, real-world-based insights and life experiences together. 

My classes goes way beyond merely learning art. It is designed to inspire and equip the next-gen creative leader within every child or youth.
Students will be encouraged to make page(s) of sketches during the week in a sketchbook, or make progress on their comic while not in class.

Manga Lab may touch on studying the designs and engineering structures of firearms, weapons, vehicles and environments of military themes. In order to create a safe tribe, we allow NO display or discussion of blood, gore, excessively dark imageries or stories.
