Workshops

AVCon has always been a place you can learn, but this year we are giving you a place to get up close and personal with some hands on experience! The workshop area is where we have lined up multiple teachers to spend all day giving detailed demonstrations on such topics as foam construction, photography, cosplay build books, as well as tons of dedicated art classes!
