In this creative arts program professional writer, teaching artist, and co-founder of the Kids’ Comic Con, Alex Simmons, will work with middle school students and teachers in the US, Ireland, and Senegal. The three groups of young people will create their own original comic book characters creating full illustrations and biographies, and more. The program will culminate in a special international online exhibit of the students’ work on the web.
On April 14 and 16 the KCC Road Show crew will once again travel to the Meadowlands, New Jersey to take part in the “Kids Love Comics Pavilion” at the East Coast Comic Con.
“The ‘Kids Love Comics Pavilion’ offers a wonderful opportunity for KCC to bring its ‘comics and kids: perfect together!’ message to the masses. The organizers of East Coast Comic Con are very supportive of kids’ comics and we appreciate the opportunity to exhibit there,” said Simmons.
