Jump into…Manga (Jump Studios)

Love Manga and comics? Sign up to our free creative course and get expert tuition to create your own stories!


Jump into…Manga is a 10 week creative course giving 10-19 year olds the opportunity to get to grips with storytelling through the art of manga and comic creation. The course will introduce participants to the Japanese artform, using traditional paper-based techniques and technology.

You will work towards releasing your one page comics at KWMC’s third annual South Bristol Gaming & Anime Expo, with the opportunity to further develop your ideas after the launch. The course will give young artists the chance to:

– develop skills including storytelling, character development and authentic styles
– receive online and printed versions of their comic
– launch their comic at the South Bristol Gaming & Anime Expo


This course is ideal for budding artists or young people who have a passion for comics, illustration and manga / anime, even if you are yet to pick up a pencil!

The course will be separated into two age groups: 10-14 and 15-19.


Sessions take place weekly at Knowle West Media Centre, Leinster Avenue, Bristol, BS4 1NL.
