Kelowna Fan Experience
Cool Arts opened its studio to pass-holders at the Kelowna Fan Experience (KFX) on March 23. Visitors enjoyed a ‘chill-out’ space and got a preview of the projects our very own Animation Club worked on through the winter semester.
We’d like to give a special shout-out to acclaimed comic artist John Delaney for joining us at our KFX themed Community Art Night on March 21 to share his knowledge of and enthusiasm for comic books!
