Event description

Description

Beginner Course: Ages 10+

Length: 2 hours

Cost : $40

How to Draw Anime is an introductory course for students, interested in learning the foundations to creating anime and manga. Each course will begin with a small lecture, where students will be encouraged to follow along. The first half of the course will provide a guided drawing lesson. This will then be followed by an Open Draw for the second half, where students can use their time to put to practice the course instruction and create original content.

Materials:

Students are encouraged to bring along a dedicated sketch book to practice their work, but basic course materials such as pencils, colored pencils, erasers, and paper will be provided.

Instructor Bio:

The work of Derrick Fields draws from complex narratives based on African American and Japanese media, culture, and nostalgia. Fields utilizes these influences to generate contemporary works while conducting themselves as an illustrator, 3D artist, and game designer. With each piece, Fields is challenged to produce layered stories that engage the viewer and empower underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.

Fields has collaborated with game designers, board game companies, and film productions. Currently, they are on their fourth development year of the upcoming indie game, Onsen Master. Fields has earned a B.S. in 3D Animation and Game Design and has a background in Illustration and Japanese.
