Manga School Nakano International

マンガスクール 中野
Standard Lesson General Information
We accept new students of our Standard manga class anytime.

This lesson is held in a Manga School Nakano classroom. Basically, it is a private lesson, but if you book as a group, the tuition will be comparatively cheap. (See Tuition in below)

Manga School Nakano has some manga tools for students, so you can come to the school with nothing. Of course you can bring your own tools, and learning techniques regarding some specific tools are available on request.

There is no pre-requisite for enrolling into this class. We welcome students at all levels. (Our youngest student we had so far, was an 8 year old boy.) Guardians are welcome to attend with students.

You can choose a subject from our lesson programs or request something you are interested in, be it a one-day manga experience, drawing manga-type illustration with authentic manga tools, watercolor painting, or producing a one shot manga during a long course, etc. For details, please visit the program page.

The school might ask students who are taking a long course, or who wants to take a high level lesson to buy some manga tools. Or the teacher may possibly lend some tools to the students during a class.

Students who are taking a long course can access a video library of online courses and are permitted to join G+hangout Q&A sessions, just like an online course student.
