Qatari Artist Rashid Al-Kuwari Hosts Anime Drawing Workshop

On June 16, prospective cartoonists and animators will have the chance to attend Rashid al- Kuwari's Anime Drawing Workshop at Katara Cultural Village.

In Japan, anime is just an abbreviation meaning "animation." Outside of Japan, anime refers to a genre of Japanese animation. The vast bulk of anime characters is adolescents or children. If your children can identify with the main characters, they will be more likely to watch anime. Due to the action/adventure genre, our children, and teens like anime. Anime is about more than just violence and magic. Some anime shows have both slice-of-life and romantic wholesomeness.

In a 2014 interview with Qatar Museums, the animation specialist discussed the use of "humor and cartoons to engage young people in vital problems such as traffic safety in Qatar," among other things. Al-Kuwari participated in several exhibitions around the nation, including the 'In Downtown' exhibition at Sikkat Wadi Msheireb, which he co-curated with Alhosh Gallery.

Anime is popular among teens for a multitude of reasons. Most anime viewers are drawn to their favorite series because they enjoy the characters. They want to sketch them, behave like them, dress up in their costumes, and so on. Their favorite characters are appealing, youthful, and possess desired qualities such as confidence, ambition, and a good attitude.
