Program Overview

Joshibi International Summer School 2020: Tokyo is a unique art and design program designed by Joshibi University of Art and Design that offers students the perfect opportunity to experience both modern and traditional Japanese art and design in one of the most exciting cities in the world.

As Japan has unique art and design not only in terms of traditional arts but also in terms of modern popular arts and design such as anime and manga, we designed the program that provides you with the opportunity to fully explore these popular culture through courses and field trips while developing your creativity by learning about various studio disciplines of Japanese traditional arts.

Areas of study include Digital Picture Book Creation, Manga (Japanese comics), Character Design, Animation, Japanese Painting, Japanese Embroidery, and Dyeing. All the course instructors are professionals in their respective fields. Tours to an animation company and other cultural spots in Tokyo are included in this program.
