Highlights

Manga

If you are familiar with Mario, Hello Kitty, Pikachu, and Rilakkuma, then you can easily understand kawaii characters. In this class in New York City, we will explore Japanese contemporary drawing styles to create Japanese anime characters of our own vision and design. Students will also learn how to make manga (Japanese-style comic) and basic animation techniques.

Starting with basic drawing techniques, children will learn about and experience various mixed media (like crayon scratch, origami and magazine collage, making textures with acrylic color, using Japanese painting paper and so on…), watch Japanese animation, and create their own characters.

Our class is not just a fan art drawing class, but also a place where the potential of young vivid imaginations can be expanded through anime characters. Once students make their own characters, they will have the opportunity to “play” with them! A character drawn on paper can be converted to a digital media file to be animated.

Kendama

Kendama is a traditional hand-held toy long enjoyed in Japan by people of all ages. The toy is typically made of wood and has a special shape: a hammer-like short rod with a spike on top and three cups to each end. A ball with a small hole is attached to the main stick.

The basic way to play Kendama is by flicking the rod so that the ball is pulled upward by the string, and attempting to catch it in one of the three cups, or spearing it with the point of the stick.

At our Kendama meetup here at RESOBOX, we encourage all Kendama players and curious potential players to join in and learn a few tricks, as well as show off their own! Our workshops and meetups range from beginner level workshops to Kendama competitions. Much like learning tricks on a skateboard, Kendama takes a lot of practice! Why not try it for yourself?

Kendamas will be provided for those who do not have one. Of course, please feel free to bring your own Kendama if you have one! The more Kendamas, the merrier!
