Art college preparatory

Specialized course for students who aim to go to Art University or Graduate school in Japan. In order to go to Art University in Japan, it requires both your ability to create and perform works of art in specialized technical Japanese.

For Undergraduate applicants, class content will focus more on developing pencil sketch, color composition skills, and short essay writing. Especially for Graduate school applicants, we offer high-level training to help students in creating their portfolios, writing application letters, doing mock interviews, etc. We believe that improving both technical skills and Japanese skills at the same time will increase students' chances of getting into Universities in Japan. Those who go to vocational schools, can also take this class for practical coaching.
