How to Draw Manga/Character Design

Sometimes all it takes to harness interest and unlock potential is guidance at the correct time.

This workshop is designed for both absolute beginners and manga/comics enthusiasts (and/or their parents!) who would love to learn where to beGIN in learning to draw their favourite and own characters.

Punctuated by step by step mini tutorials along the way; as well as both interactive elements (working in teams AND individually), it’s thus engaging for even the most hyperactive of students/children. You can choose to book either a Manga Character Workshop or just a Character Creation workshop without the emphasis on Manga.


  1. For the participants to create a character/series of characters using a variety of newly learned skills.
  2. To get an initial grasp of how to draw in a manga STYLE if they wish to continue; courtesy of the minitutorials and the resource sheets they’ll be provided with (if workshop is Manga-specific).
  3. To come away with an understanding of what makes a memorable and standout character; no matter the medium.

Workshop Structure:

The workshop duration is typically 1.5- 2 hours long for the absolute basics.

For the full Character creation AND Manga skills workshop it would extend to 3.5 hours (half an hour of which will be a break in the middle after the initial 1.5 hour session).

Materials Needed:

  • Flipboard/ whiteboard
  • Pens
