Whatever your motivation, leisure or profession, we offer you a teaching according to your desires and objectives.

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

Often referred to as the Ninth Art, comics, or Manga in Japanese culture, has an impressive cultural and editorial diversity. Mangas, French-Belgian comics, comic books or graphic novels: so many examples that are only a glimpse of the artistic richness of this universe!


On the basis of a personal project, the student learns to perfect his stroke, colouring and characters, by elaborating a scenario on several pages. He will have the opportunity to follow either an artistic trend he likes or simply his own inspiration. To do this, the course covers 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 in traditional or digital techniques, using an IPad pro.
