About this Course

MAC is excited to offer 5-week courses designed for children, focusing on the world of Japanese Manga. This distinctive drawing style, which has its roots in Japan, has gained widespread popularity across the globe. This style has become extremely popular among audiences all over the world and we see many children and teens experimenting with this kind of art.

Guiding our young artists on this creative journey is our talented teacher, Rina Kondakova. Students will learn about Manga Style’s rich history and then delve into the core components and techniques of this iconic style. Throughout this course, Rina will provide support and encouragement, fostering a positive and fun environment for artistic growth.

Rina is a current Bachelor of Art student studying visual art and education at Deakin University. She received the 2018 Black SwanYouth Portraiture Prize (1st place), 2018 ACMI Top Screen award (finalist), and was one of 16 artists selected for the 2021 National Gallery of Australia summer art scholarship. Rina specialises in traditional portraiture and anime/manga. She is fond of oil and acrylic paint, sketching and digital art.

To ensure the best learning experience, our short courses have limited availability, allowing Rina to provide personalised one-on-one instruction to each student. This tailored approach ensures that every participant receives the individual attention they need to flourish in their Manga artistry.
