Local youth to be in Artist Alley at Bakersfield Comic Con, Nov. 16-17
November 9, 2019
Saida Woolf and Cora Sweeney, Juniors from Valley Oaks Charter School in Tehachapi, are excited to be included in Bakersfield's 12th Annual Comic Con, Nov. 16-17. While both emerging artists are no strangers to the Tehachapi Library hosted Comic Cons, this will be their first time in the Artist Alley at the long running Bakersfield event.
Saida has her own comic that will be published, as well as recently being awarded the 2019 Karen Romano Young's Science Comic Contest winner, which was featured in the April issue of Muse Magazine. She has had much success in the past winning awards both nationally and locally. Saida spent her summer at both UCLA and CSUN in programs honing her creative skills.
Cora is a recent 2019 California Art Scholar through California State Summer School of the Arts (CSSSA), where she spent four weeks in an intensive fine arts program at CalArts. Like her creative counterpart, Cora has received art awards on both a local and national level.
Both artists are currently working on new projects and will feature their new works. They are excited and very grateful for the opportunity to show their work along side the professional artists that will be featured at Bakersfield Comic Con.
