Manga Course

Manga / BD Courses

This course introduces students to the world of sequential art, more widely known as comics, manga, comic books, or graphic novels.

Whatever your motivation, leisure or professionalization, we offer you a teaching according to your desires and objectives. The warm and dynamic atmosphere will stimulate you both academically and artistically. Our pedagogy is based on a creative, motivating and formative approach, in the valorization of the student's talents.

You can register at any time, regardless of your starting level: beginner, intermediate or advanced.


The beginner student starts with a simple project, which will allow him to lay the foundations, while determining his desires and needs, according to his current level. Then, the student is accompanied in the creation of much more complete and personal projects, in which he will tackle the different technical aspects of his art. He will have the possibility to follow either an artistic trend he likes or simply his own inspiration.

On the basis of a personal project, the student learns to perfect his stroke, his colouring and his characters, by elaborating a scenario on several pages. To do this, the course focuses on different techniques and trends, thus opening the student's mind to the graphic possibilities available to him: illustration, comics, manga, realistic drawing, landscape, portrait, observation drawing, street-art, sketches, geek-art, character design, etc. All of this can be done either in traditional or digital techniques, using an IPad pro.

Objectives and skills

Techniques covered

  • Scenario building
  • Creation of characters and scenery
  • Colouring
  • Cutting the boxes from the text
  • The work of "bubbles" or phylactery

Such a complete project allows the student to acquire many drawing skills (working with proportions, perspectives, light...) while being free in the choice of the technique used (pencils, felt-tip pens, gouache, watercolour, Indian ink, digital). In this way, the student works on developing his personal style.

Age: from 9 years old
