Parents & Students’ Voices

Here is the real voices from my students and parents.

I didn’t ask them to write me sweet words ….. this is just what they wrote to me 😁


Parents Voice


More detailed words from parents

so this time I’ve asked some parents to write about my lessons 🙂



Marc, a father to a 7 year-old Danish girl that I’ve been teaching. for … almost a year!


Vores 7-ĂĄrige datter har med stor glæde deltaget i gruppeundervisning i manga-tegning hver uge hos Koko. Koko er en fantastisk underviser, der ikke blot formĂĄr at fostre børnenes kreativitet, opmuntre og motivere dem, samt lære dem om manga-kunstens centrale elementer, men som ogsĂĄ formĂĄr at lære børnene ting om japansk kunst og kultur undervejs. Vi er sĂĄ glade for, at vi har opdaget Koko’s tegneklub, og vi glæder os til at se, hvad hun og børnene vil opnĂĄ sammen over de næste mange ĂĄr.


For a long time our 7-year old daughter has participated in weekly manga-drawing group sessions at Koko’s with the utmost joy. Koko is a fantastic teacher, who not only manages to foster the creativity of her pupils, encourage and motivate them, and teach them the key elements of the manga drawing style; she somehow also manages to teach the children about the fascinating aspects of japanese art and culture as they go along. We are so thankful that we have discovered Koko’s Manga Drawing Club, and we look forward to discovering what Koko and her pupils will accomplish together over the next coming years.

Ella, mother of 2 kids –

Mine to børn er rigtig glade for at tegne med Koko. Hun skaber et kreativt og udfordrende læringsmiljø, som støtter dem i deres nysgerrighed. De afprøver forskellige tegne- og farveteknikker, og de får på den måde mulighed for at fokusere på den kreative proces snarere end det endelige produkt. Vores varmeste anbefalinger 🙂

My two kids really enjoy drawing with Koko. She sets up a creative and challenging learning environment that supports them in their curiosity. They try out different drawing and coloring techniques which gives them an opportunity to focus on the creative process rather than on the end product. Highly recommended 🙂

Student’s Voice

Your drawing classes have been an amazing experience for me. While I’ve always loved drawing manga/anime-styled art, your lessons have elevated my art to new levels and made me improve in ways that I can tangibly feel and recognize in my art! Since attending your classes, I’ve been paying much more attention to the way I draw eyes; hair; and clothes, and to the way I color! Furthermore, it was clear in every class that you are extremely passionate about what you do, and that you love to teach your students! Your enthusiasm is clear, and it makes classes so much more fun; it creates a great, warm atmosphere, and it made me excited to come to every class! Plus, you’re amazing not only at giving us positive feedback, but pointing out areas where we can do even better. What’s more, your unique worksheets and method of using the manga and anime students are already familiar with as examples, as well as giving us the chance to draw both characters that we already know, as well as ones that might fall out of our comfort zone, is a great mix of the familiar and the new, and it adds extra excitement to classes! While online classes were a tad on the rough side for me, I was still excited to attend each and every one of them, because you still made them so fun, despite the limitations! Thank you so much for being you, and for being awesome!

Employer’s Voice


Koko Kimura
Koko has been hired by Viden Djurs to teach at Manga Camp. Manga Camp is
a holiday activity for young people aged 13-18, from all over the country, with
10-15 participants each camp. The camp is a drawing course that focuses on a
common interest in Japanese popular culture, including manga and anime.
Koko has been a very pleasant acquaintance, she is very committed and
has performed its tasks really well and has thus been an important factor for

the success of the camp. Koko is creative, drawing-technically skilled and al-
ways well-prepared.

Koko has been responsible for devising and teaching the traditional part of
drawing the course and this part has each time been incredibly accomplished
and had an extremely positive reception from the participants. Koko knows

how to vary the teaching material in a way that both makes it possible for be-
ginners to follow and for participants who have been at the camp repeatedly, to

learn something new and feel challenged.
Koko has been good at meeting the participating students at eye level and
organizing her teaching to the individual student’s needs and wishes. This
includes, among other things, that Koko has been good at using its resources
to make sure that all students feel included in teaching, this includes students
with special challenges. Koko has also been good at adapting her teaching to
the special conditions that have been under Corona.
