This is an event you don’t want to miss! 😀
It started in January 2014, when comic book artist and art educator Emily Drouin felt the need for an interactive kids friendly area at comic conventions, where families can participate in cartooning workshops, hands on arts and crafts, facepainting, and other entertainment, as well as hang out with superheroes, fun costumed characters, and share her love of art and comics. Emily’s first two kids con events were at the Rock Comic Expo and Kids Conn at Hartford Comic Con in spring 2014. There was such a positive response and everyone had so much fun, that she was quickly asked to do other kids con events at comic conventions and fairs throughout New England, and so Kids Con New England® was born!
