Manga is a popular genre of illustration in the world of comics, originating in Japan. Manga Summer/Spring Day Camp is a fun-filled week of Japanese culture and arts with a special focus on MANGA! We have an exciting week of activities to immerse beginner and intermediate level manga enthusiasts in Japanese Canadian arts and culture. They will experience a lineup of workshops by local Vancouver comic artists who will share their knowledge of illustration, storytelling, and design. Manga Camp kids will design and create their own Manga and will take home a copy of their comic booklet including stories designed by all of the day campers! The manga component will be complemented by cultural crafts and activities led by local teachers of traditional Japanese arts.
