The local chapter of the 501st and Rebel Alliance, two volunteer Star Wars group, will also be there showing off some sweet light saber action moves. 

Art Way Alliance will be there with a bunch of artists. Expect inking and coloring demos throughout the day and large coloring pages. Come early and even create your own superhero mask! 

We'll be offering the following workshops: 

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Be Your Own Superhero - We may not live in a world where people fly or lift cars, but we can all discover our own super-powers and be a real super-hero! Join a fun workshop and learn about the great heroes and heroines of comics who are more popular today than ever! Learn what it takes to be a real super-hero, and design your own super-hero look! Charles Sellner of Visionary Comics instructs.

1:30 PM - 2:30 PM Creativity in Comics  - From concept to completion this workshop covers the process of creating a comic book.  There are many steps in making a comic book, and in this class students will learn how to focus ideas into a single concept for a story, story boarding, layout,  and much more. Local Comic Writer/ Creator Keir Lyles will also discuss his own creation process and help students flesh out some ideas.

3:00 Pm - 4:00 PM The Art of Drawing Chibi - Chibi, which means "small child," is a style formed from Japanese anime and manga that exaggerates features like head size and shape, height, and eye size. In this class students will learn to transform a character into a Chibi! We will explore different styles of Chibi as well as pinpointing key features to capture the identity and attitude of a character. Dennis Johnson instructs.

Come on out! Tickets are $10.00 for individuals and $20.00 for families - meaning mom, dad, and kids! We can't wait to see you there!
