Clip Studio Paint partners with French manga and animation school Human Academy Europe to support the next generation of manga artists

日本語 / English / Français 

Clip Studio Paint, the illustration, comic, webtoon, and animation app developed and distributed by Celsys, is partnering with the Japanese manga and animation vocational school Human Academy Europe in Angoulême, France, to enrich the educational content of courses offered from 2023 to 2024.

Packed with dedicated features for illustration, manga, webtoons, and animation, Clip Studio Paint provides free tutorials, articles, videos, and other content to help creators better understand the app in a practical way and have fun in their creative activities.

As the Clip Studio Paint app is already used in courses at Human Academy Europe, this partnership adds more value and relevance to such courses by enriching the curriculum with new materials provided by Celsys, the developer of the app. 

In addition, students enrolled at the school can register to receive a one-year license of Clip Studio Paint Debut free of charge. Aimed at new designers who have no experience using digital drawing apps, this grade offers the essential features for getting started with digital illustration.

After gaining proficiency with Clip Studio Paint Debut and learning how to use new digital tools, artists can upgrade to higher grades of the app.

Through this partnership with Human Academy Europe, Clip Studio Paint aims to support young artists and newcomers to digital art to develop their creative skills without restrictions.
