Manga course

“Manga” has become a common language of the world nowadays. It is giant media widely loved across countries and generations. The Manga generation becomes core of people who support art. Some artworks adapt the expression of Manga, and some are Manga itself. Under this background, this course explores Manga as composite art. We invite Mr. Naoki Urasawa, Japan’s leading cartoonist, and Mr. Takashi Nagasaki, active Manga producer as the teaching staff. Instruction from basics to special technique of Manga is provided by experts. As we are art school, students are able to develop their depictive skills which are essential for the visual art expression. Even if you are excellent in drawing, you can not always be a cartoonist. So, we instruct you on how to conceive an idea for story and build it up. We aim for becoming a cartoonist as a story-teller, a commentator, an entertainer and a composite artist by learning both art and Manga.
