Club Description

In this Anime-zing course, your child will learn all about the Japanese Art of Anime. Anime is a form of animation, where the subjects are characterised by their exaggerated facial cues and expressions. Quite often, everything an Animé character is feeling can be depicted in their huge eyes. Pokemon is a great example of a popular Animé series.

Over multiple sessions, your child will be immersed in a range of fun games, activities and drawing challenges. They will learn to sketch lights and shadows, depict their character’s movement and characterise their subjects through their facial expressions. They will even get to use their new skills to create their very own Animé character.
