The Long Beach Comic Con (http://longbeachcomiccon.com/) has provided us with a special opportunity for youth artists.
Come to the Con, draw at the Makersville table for an hour (youth may charge or put out a donation jar) and then enjoy the con for the rest of the day.
Limited spaces available at the table.  You must pay for your ticket to enter, but we have been given a special price.  $15 per person over 10, up to 2 youth under 10 may accompany a ticketed person.  Your ticket is good for both days.

Each youth artist must be accompanied by a responsible adult who is with the youth during his/her time at the booth.

This is a Youth Empowerment opportunity.  all ages and skill levels are encouraged to participate.

RSVPs and payments must be made by 9/18.  I will be submitting the application form on 9/19, and must pay for tickets at that time.  After that time, youth may still apply, but ticket costs will have increased.  Call Trish 562-225-9589.
