For New Students, you will be taught the foundation skills of drawing Manga characters, features and clothing.

For Returning Students, you will continue to develop what you’ve learnt with Donna, so far, and build on your skills to further improve your drawing, using source material and your imagination.

    I am a graphic artist who has decided to turn my hobby into something more serious, mainly due to such positive feedback from others. I am now producing limited prints of my work and will be building stock to attend fairs. I came across your site and would love to know more about the project and if you have openings for new artists?
    kind regards
