I have been holding workshops at schools and libraries since 2006, primarily How To Draw Manga lessons for children or young adults. If you are interested in lessons for aspiring professionals, I recommend you read about my Comic Making Lessons.
My Manga workshops are either 1 or 2 hours long and focus on character creation and generating an idea for a story. I have also made 1-5 day courses for school break activities. I am gender positive and do not gender the characters or specific attributes, so not to steer the students towards gender stereotypes.
1 hour Manga Workshop
I teach step by step with instructions on a whiteboard or similar, how to make a manga character’s face with simple tricks that lets even the least experienced make a finished portrait of their character within this 1 hour lesson. This lesson is suitable for 8 year olds and older.
2 hour Manga Workshop
I teach both face and body design for manga characters and even how to draw clothes and basic movement. This lesson is suitable for 10 year old and older.
