Inspo Teens Course Descriptions

Ages 13-18


The Art of Kawaii


In Japanese culture, “kawaii” means cute! Think Hello Kitty. Think Pokémon and anime. We’re going to make a collection of adorable cuties, including designing our very own characters using kawaii principles. Learn different facial expressions and drawing techniques specific to this genre.

Suggested Supplies: Pencil, Eraser (pink, white or kneaded all work great), a variety of black ink pens (my suggestions would be Micron illustration pens and a brush tip marker). You are welcome to bring your own supplies, but a course kit is also available for purchase. Please request a kit when registering for the class.

Please bring your own markers or colored pencils. We’ll color our cuties, when time permits.
