Mrs. Vallarta has been focusing on anime/art on Outschool since February 2018. As a personal avid anime enthusiast, she is familiar with many series, genres, characters and can teach how to execute any aspect of this. Mrs. Vallarta has her Bachelors in Fine Arts and has taught art for 18+ years. Five of those years has been online. 
Mrs. Vallarta offers over 50 different types of courses that include but not limited to; general anime, anatomy, art, drawing, watercoloring and more.  
No homework necessary. 
Assessments can be offered upon request. Please reach out and Mrs. V can work with your request. 
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. 
We reference the Studio Ghibli film; Spirited Away.
