About The Instructor
Candice Graham has always had a passion for art since she was little. This passion eventually turned into a love of animation, illustration, and comics. As an adult she went on to receive her B.F.A in Animation from the University of the Arts in 2012. For the past four years, Candice has been a youth arts instructor at the Moore College of Art’s in the Young Adult Workshop program. There, she has taught classes in animation, manga illustration, graphic design, graphic novels, character design, and digital arts. It was here that she discovered her love of education and how much fun it is to share her passions with a younger generation, hoping to inspire them and guide them to becoming artists in their own right. While teaching for Moore her long time interest in Japan, and its culture, as well as a new found passion for education, brought her to the Shofuso House, where she works during the summer months as a docent and guide for the many guests that visit the historical landmark. She is excited to bring together her interests in the arts, Japan, and education to Shofuso’s Summer Camp Manga Immersion program.
