Demonstrations, Workshops & Meet-ups
VCON will be presenting art demonstration, workshops, and artist meet-ups for all ages, located right in the heart of the Artists’ Avenue! Specifics of this year’s sessions will be determined further on into the year, but you can check out the information below to look over the sessions and presenters from VCON 42 last year.
4-Panel Comic Contest
Audience: all ages
Last year VCON’s Art Show held a contest where participants were given a sheet where they could draw a 4-panel comic for the chance to win a prize. Submissions were displayed in the art gallery and winners were announced on the last day of the event. It is currently unknown if there will be an art-related contest this year but if there is this section will be updated.
