Be Prepared - December 7th

December 7th will be a busy day for Art Way Alliance, and we would love for you to join us. We've got 3 cons that are super tailored to whatever interest you may have.

Patriot-TTC's 6th Annual Video Jam 2013 - The Video Jam Conference, held at Prince George's Community College, teaches children how to make their own video games with the software Microsoft Kodu. Kids then compete in groups to see who invented the best game. Expect lots of playable games like Madden), and a slew of other non-profits helping out. AWA's Keir Lyles will be there teaching children how to character design their video game characters as they prepare for their competition. There is a registration fee of $25 (members) and $35 (non-members) for those who would like to participate.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority's Prince William County Alumnae Chapter's 4th Annual Red Carpet Showcase- Held from 2 PM - 5 PM at Cougar Elementary School, this event features emerging artists, musicians, and authors in the DMV area deserving of your support. These artists are selling their product, and are some of the nicest, most creative people that you could meet. AWA founder Eric Suggs, Jr. will be there to showcase the art of our instructors. Special guests include NAACP Image Award winning author Victoria Christopher Murray.

Blakescape  - This premier conference is sure to be a blast. Merging conference and expo, this event features technology, video gaming, and art. Expect anything from  live demos and presentations of new technology (both professional and student-designed) to professional comic book artists with insight in the business. AWA will be there with information about our future programs and with a featured artist who would be willing to consult anyone on their art techniques.
