What is Manga? Let’s draw your first manga character!
Are you new or have a bit of experience in drawing manga? Come and join INKO to get to know what manga is all about and why it’s so popular. In this free 1 hour workshop, INKO will talk about what is manga all about and a brief history of Manga. Then you will learn to draw your first manga character with step-by-step instruction!
This workshop will also give you a great opportunity to ask any questions or whatever you have been wondering about manga to a professional manga artist! You don’t need to have any drawing experience to join in, and if you’d rather just watch how a manga character is drawn, that’s just fine too.
