VanCAF’s goal is to build the community of comic book creators in Vancouver and beyond, and that applies to kids and teenagers too!
Throughout the weekend we will be offering hands-on lessons with VanCAF’s exhibitors, introducing kids to the basics of comic book creation, to help inspire the next generation of writers, artists, and cartoonists.
Each session will be 30-minutes, and they will take place in the Roundhouse’s Arts & Crafts room.
