The Manga Industry program is expected to play a vital role in fostering the art scene in Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi Literature, Publishing, and Translation Commission, and Manga Productions company have come together to launch the second round of the Manga Industry program. The program, which commenced on June 12 and will run until February 1 next year, aims to nurture and promote the talent of aspiring manga artists.
That’s according to Magzoid magazine, which explains:
Manga Productions, a subsidiary of the Misk Foundation, has been actively supporting the creative arts industry in Saudi Arabia through various initiatives. The Manga Industry program, consisting of three phases and two competitions, is a crucial step toward recognizing and evaluating the skills of talented artists.
The program’s initial phase involves three workshops focusing on enhancing creativity in drawing, designing comic characters, and expressing emotions through anime and manga characters. The second phase, a comprehensive six-week training program, delves deep into the intricacies of manga design and character drawing. Through expert guidance and hands-on training, artists will learn the art of visual storytelling and develop their unique style.
The Manga Industry program is expected to play a vital role in fostering the art scene in Saudi Arabia. By providing aspiring artists with comprehensive training, exposure to international manga artists, and platforms to showcase their talent, the program aims to elevate the manga industry within the Kingdom and contribute to the growth of the creative arts sector.
