ADVANCED MANGA / COMIC
online art camp for kids 10-16 years old
This camp will be held ONLINE via ZOOM video conference. Students will need access to a computer / tablet / phone with internet connection and zoom.us. Art materials will be available for pick up from the studio few days before the start of the camp (dates and details will be provided).
Do you often find yourself doodling characters in different positions, but always alone on a page, willing to move further? Are you a fan or comic art and animation, and would like to try your hand on it? Or, maybe, you draw comic books, and would like professional advice? We have a camp for you! It's dedicated to visual storytelling. To join it, you need to be able to draw your characters in various poses, while keeping them recognizable.
For details, please see the camp schedule.
