If you haven’t heard yet, we have a really fun Manga program for kids ages 10-12! Manga are Japanese comic books that are characterized by very distinctive and highly stylized illustrations. If you enjoy comic books and graphic novels and are interested in improving your drawing skills, come join us! Karen Luk, a professional illustrator and comic artist, will be teaching you the secrets of drawing Manga faces, expressions and characters. Karen’s work was on display just a few short months ago at the Cartoon Art Museum. I was lucky enough to get a glimpse of her art and I’m definitely looking forward to this program at my library branch. Here are the upcoming dates and locations.
Niles Library – Tuesday, May 15th @ 3:15 p.m.
San Lorenzo Library – Wednesday, May 16th @ 3:30 p.m.
Centerville Library – Thursday, May 17th @ 3:30 p.m.
