Digital Anime

Digital Anime (Offered through Newark, Fremont, Mountain View, Cupertino and Online Campuses) have become a staple in young people’s literary consumption and they continue to become more sophisticated not only in art but in storytelling as well. Many modern comics like March are now considered literary works of art in the same vein as classic novels like to Kill a Mockingbird. This gives us an opportunity to use the popularity of comics and manga to introduce many students to the fundamentals of drawing and to unlock their hidden passion for visual storytelling.

Ages: 11+
