“With this class, I will be teaching how to draw in the Japanese-style cartoon, called anime,” said Kara Hancock, the instructor for the class. “Unleash your creativity with lots of practice exercises, creative drawing time, practice with posing, and really testing your limits as a young artist. At the end of this course, you will have basic knowledge of anime and how to draw it, as well as basic artist concepts to continue improving outside of class!”
