Class Experience

I conduct the Studio Ghibli series on Outschool. I am a huge Hayao Miyazaki fan and have been studying his work for a number of years. I have been a personal fan for over 25 years. My classes focus on Hayao Miyazaki himself and I conduct lecture courses on other Studio Ghibli films (ex. Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Ponyo, Princess Mononoke).  
I also conduct over ten different types of anime drawing courses. 
My art teaching practices focus on art, anime and Studio Ghibli. 
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The MPAA rating for this film is PG, but I would say there is one "scary" creature in the film that devours a few other characters. Some viewers may find him grotesque as he has a gluttonous nature. For this reason, this film may be more appropriately for students 13+. Please contact me directly if you have any questions.
