Manga Academy 2.5

The Youth Artist Program is hosting a virtual manga comic art workshop from June 24 – July 16.

Each young artist will receive supplies that include paper, pencils, and other resource materials. The workshop focuses on teaching manga drawing techniques, storyboarding, inking, and coloring. Each artist will create a four-page manga with a book cover for a manga anthology.  The anthology will be published as well as distributed online by Taller.

Illustration experience is not required. The workshop is a celebration of manga, anime, comic art, and the spirit of storytelling. Acceptance to the program is first-come, first-serve. There are only 20 spots for this workshop. 


The artists’ are required to attend each session and complete their assignments. Missing two sessions will result in removal from the workshop and anthology.  The class meets online every Wednesday & Thursday from 10 am – 1 pm with a 30 min recess in between. The course is led by Daniel de Jesús.

The class is free to current and former YAP students ages 15 – 20. New registrants pay $50. Space is limited.  Runs from June 24 – July 16. Must register by June 19.
